    	Ok, Now a few words from yours truly. As you might have guessed from 
    the title, this is a step by step walk through guide to the PS2 game: 
    .Hack//G.U.- Rebirth
    
    If you’ve never played the games ( ‘Original series’, or the G.U. series) Then
    I’d say you’re in for a real treat. If you don’t have all four (Original) games
    or the three new games of the G.U. series at this point; then I suggest you
    start looking.
    
     The games(at least the old ones) are becoming something of a rarity in some 
    respects and for a gamer with his/her recourses limited to the local GameStop 
    store, you might want to keep your eyes open. 
    However if you have the ability to use E-Bay then I suggest locating them 
    there as I’m sure they’d be more readily available. It took me over a year to 
    track down all four volumes using local stores, and that was in the summer of
     05’; I can only imagine how hard they are to get now.
    
    	 Recently in Nov. of 06 .Hack// GU- Rebirth was released and from what
    I understand it sorta flopped, which is really sad considering it got rated 
    8-9 out of 10 from most gaming websites and by most fans. So I can't imagine
    how hard it would be to get ahold of but at least try if you like the series 
    because, especially the new games, are really really fricking sweet. 
    I myself bought  the special edition of Rebirth the second day it came out.
    (It includes  the Terminal Disk). The Second Volume of the GU Series,Reminisce,
    is due to come out May 8,07 and the third game Redemption will be released
    September 10,07. But moving right along.
    
    In order for you to better enjoy the games I’m going to give you a short 
    run down on some  background information that you may find helpful if you find
    yourself enthralled with  this series like so many of us fans.
    The series known as Project .Hack// is a large series including TV series,
    video games, and novels/ manga. “Project .Hack//" has an extraordinary story
    line that in my opinion rivals that of the Finial Fantasy franchise. (Not to
    say anything bad about Final Fantasy: I am a big fan of it myself) Really the
    Sad difference is that if it doesn't have the name Finial Fantasy stamped on
    the cover most RPGers wont touch it.
     
    	The project includes 3 Anime TV series, two sets of video games (for a
    total of 7 games all together), and many novels, manga, and other media.
    
    Going in chronological order (in terms of the story line) we have 
    
    --Old media
    
    .Hack//SIGN (TV series)
    
    .Hack//Infection,Mutationm Outbreak,Quarantine (four ‘classic games’)
    
    .Hack//Legend of the Twilight (TV)
    
    --Then the newest additions to the series are: 
    
    .Hack//ROOTS (TV) 
    
    .Hack// G.U. Vol: 1 (Rebirth),2 (Reminisce), and 3 (Redemption) 
    are the new video games dating(2006-2007).
    
     Also note that there are bonus disks that come with each of the four original 
    games and one bonus disk (The Terminal Disk) that comes with the special 
    edition of .Hack//G.U.- Vol. 1-Rebirth. I also understand that a bouns
    will come  with the normal copy of Vol. 2-Reminisce ;it is the 
    first episode of .Hack//ROOTS if I'm not mistaken.
    
    This is just a short run down of the .hack//  media that is available, there 
    are also novels and manga out there but I myself don't have much resources to
    get my hands on that type of thing; so I have to stick to what I know. However
    if you’re interested in .Hack//  either now or by the time you finish this 
    guide then I strongly suggest to you,  that you visit: www.dothackers.net 
    You can find more information on the games and anything concerning the
     series there. 
    
    Now I’m sure you’re sick and tired of me babbling on so if 
    that's the case then we can get on to business. 
    
    	This Guide with take you step by step through leveling up, boss fights,
    story events, back ground information. Be forewarned now, this guide contains
    huge spoilers BUT, Major events in the guide that contain spoilers will be 
    marked and I will let you know ahead of time when such an event is coming up.
    In this way I will be able to have you play ahead to a spot I will tell you
    about before hand; an example of this might be something like: “Play on and
    watch the scenes, come back to read more when its done.” This keeps the guide
    from spoiling the story line. Yet allows me to walk you through it.
    
    Also note that the .Hack//  games feature a convert game data system.
    
    Q: What is it and why should I care?
    A: when you beat of these games you will recive a Data Flag, or 
    Cleared data. What this does is that you can pop in the next game ,and you can
    load up your saved data from the game before. That means it's possible to 
    continue the story line with a well prepared character in the next volume. You
    keep all your exp, items, money, equipment,party members...
    everything. Or if you bought the games out of order:
     you can start a new game even on game 2 or 3, ect. And apperentally there
    is enough new game play and story that it feels like a new game rather then
    the same old game play with the continued story line.
    
    Important note: I should forwarned anyone Converting data should know that with 
    the data from The four old games, the terminal disk, and the 3 new games, you
     almost need a completly seperate ps2 memory card just for.hack//.
    
    Well, with that out of the way. Lets get going.

    --------------------A) Vol. 1- Rebirth --------------------------
    
    --- Game info.
    Game length: Moderate 
    Average Game time: 30 hours (25-40 hours)
    Difficulty: Easy-Medium 
    
    ----Over View---
    --Gameplay: 8/10- Nothing's perfect but still ALOT of fun.
    --Music: 10/10- It fits perfectly, and I mean Perfectly.
    --Graphics: 9/10 - granted it can't compare to some 
    Final Fantasy CG movies, but it's the next best thing.
    --Voice Acting: 9.5/10 - only on rare occasions did I 
    think it might have been better,and even then not by much.
    --Replay Value: 8/10- There's more replay value once you beat 
    the second game, but even so, there is still a good amount to do.
    --Story Line: 10/10- By itself it can't be compared to the rest of 
    the .hack series as a whole, but still as a seperate game, it has
    to be the best so far.
    
    Overall rating: 9/10 - Best of all the .Hack games to date. Other two games at
    this time are yet to be released. Still: Great game play, amazing music, great
    graphics,and a story worthy to be called .Hack// .
    
    
    
    
    
     --- Getting started-
    Alright. First things first. Those of us who went and bought the Special 
    Edition. As you can see your wonderfull package came with two extra things:
     A Haseo toy (booo) and a bonus disk titled- Terminal Disk (YAY!!). The later
     of the two is a disk that has extra information about the story events games
     and the previous .Hack game series as well as info that concerns the story 
    events of the GU series.
    Anyway this disk is like the most amazing thing ever. If you've never played 
    the old games this is the perfect thing to bring you up to date on important 
    events. The disk contians 11 reports that makes up a journal made by one of 
    the head engineers at CC corp. He wrote the journal for his little sister as
     something of a confession of what he did while at CC corp.  For those 
    wondering, His sister is a character that you meet in the game, and she also
     works for CC Corp.  You can unlock the reports by converting the saved data 
    flag from the previous  games and a cleared data from the three new games.
    
    ---For those who don't have the Terminal disk I highly suggest looking at the 
    in-depth guide at (www.gamefaqs.com) written by CRtwety. He did an AMAZING job
     writing his guide for the Terminal Disk. And I HIGHLY suggest reading it if 
    you don't have the Terminal  disk open to you. But be warned now. Some of the
    later Reports ,the reports that are after report 4, contian HUGE spoilers. So
    if you read that guide, JUST look at the first 4 reports that concern the 
    events from the original games.
    
    
    
    
    Well anyway starting into the game:
    What you need to realize is that .Hack is a story about an online game, if
    it's confussing now you'll soon get the hang of the concept.
    As you put in the disk take time to watch the opening movie play and don't
    skip it. It's sweet.
    As the main menu comes up notice that you have the Convert option at the 
    bottom. There's a reason for this. If you've played the above mentioned games
     can take you're cleared data from those games and get bonus material while 
    playing this game. So if you have said game data from the previous .hack games
     you can use that convert option now if you wish.
    -Also, if you play and beat the 2nd game in this series; you
     can take your game data and covert back to the first game. By doing this
    the game puts you at level 35 instead of starting a level 1. And you get
    some better equipment, and some extra cash and items,
    
    
    After that lets get started:
    
    Go Ahead, start a new game and watch the opening movie.

    --------------------------------
    Movie- Opening
    Short Version/Main points: This shows when our main hero of the 
    game, Haseo,as he makes his Charatcer and steps into "The World" 
    for the first time.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Look, if this is your first time playing you may know about Haseo's kinda
    gay looking outfit. Well I'll admit that at times it really does look prety
    lame. BUT, don't worry, 1/3 into the game Haseo gets a Job Extension which 
    changes his appearence and then he looks amazing. So please bear with the game
    till you see the CG movies comming up later and his Job 
    Extention. And besides after you play the game a bit more you'll start to not
    notice so much and eventually it won't bother you so bad.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    
    As you log in for the first time you will apear in Mac Anu, the main town for 
    the game. And are met by two....very helpful players.
    This in the first tutorial for the game: They do a really good job explaining
    everything and Honestly I don't think I'll need to say much, but I'll comment
    here and there. 
    
    After you form a party, go and save your game before you head out.
    
    Note)The blue number is the people at the location you're about to warp to. 
    The pink people are the number of people you've already met out of the
    blue number.

    -Just make sure to do as your 'friends' ask you and you'll be fine. It's all
    prety easy.
    
    --Comabt--
    
    As the long time .hack fans will notice Combat is ALOT differnt is someways and
    yet it still retians it's .Hackish feeling. Read on for detials.
    
    -Combos-Rapidly pressing X will result in Haseo preforming a basic combo 
    attack. At the end of the combo Haseo will preform a finishing attack. 
    Depending on what kind of weapon you are 
    using (Speed or Hold and Release) will determine what you have to do to 
    preform the finishing attack for the combo. 'Speed' requires you to rapidly 
    press X. 'Hold and Release' requires you to charge the attack and then release
    it to exacute.
    
    -Charged attacks- Hold X to charge an attack. It takes a few seconds but this
    attack will send an enemy flying, which is critical for certian battles. 
    Charged attacks also break enemy's guard.
    
    -Block-Those who played the old games will be happy to know that the new games
    feature a new and amazing thing: A block button =P. Yes that's right. The 
    block button (circle) will defend you against all attacks (including magic).
    BUT it won't block charged attacks or status ailments .But you wont face any
    enemies like that for awhile but in the Arena. So no worries for now.
    
    -Rengeki- This bascily lets you do more powerfull attacks, kinda like a
     critical hit. If you rapidly inflict damage to an enemy blue and purple 
    circles will form around the enemy. If you trigger an arts in that time you 
    will increase  the damage dealt from the attack. It also increases the Exp 
    you'll get at the end of the battle, plus it increases the exp for your Arts 
    level which allows you to gain new arts.
    
    -Arts and Skills- Arts are (for Haseo) the offensive physical skills. As you
    go through the game ,gaining more Rengeki exp, you will level up your 
    weapon's level, or in other words how proficient you are at using twin swords.
    As you level  up your weapon's abilities, you will gain up to 4 arts in
    vol. 1-Rebirth. 
    
    -After Battles: A menue will appear and this shows you how much exp you gain
    and what rewards you recive to defeating an enemy party. Players of the older
    games will again be happy to see that you gain ALOT more exp per battle. In 
    three battles you can gain a level. Alot better then the old: 10 battles 
    per level.
    
    -Menue- If you open the menue by pressing triangle, you will notice that 
    everything you need to worry about can be dealt with in one menu. 
    -Replacing the old complex chat system from the older games is a brand new 
    stradgey menu. It allows you to set you characters to differnt stances that 
    will alow you're charatcers to fight in different ways. For now it's a good
    idea just to leave things as is. Also if you go under "skill" in the menue, 
    you can not only chose skills that Haseo uses but also desingnate skills 
    you're party members can use. You can use the menue in battle. Use it to 
    activate healing,attack magic,and other skills. This right here simplifies 
    all the complexe chat systems from the old game, and you'll find it much 
    more simple.
    
    -Also a change worth note-ing is that you only have one peice of armor, one
    weapon as normal, and an accessory. These three peices of equipment have 
    customization slots.  The slots alow you to add atributes to the equipment
     like added fire damage for weapons, or -10% physical damage for armor, 
    or -5% Sp use for arts for accessories. Different stuff like 
    that you can mess around with later so don't worry about it just yet.
    
    -Map- You can view the full map by pressing the SELECT button. Press X once 
    to view the map objectives. Press Select again to make the map disapear 
    completey. You must press Select again to make it re apear in the upper right
     hand corner. Basicly it cycles through three positions: Mini map, Full map, 
    No mini map (repeats). Also note. There are compass markings on the outer 
    edges of the map- North, south, east ,and west.
    
    
     Explore the menue; you'll find explanitions for everything at the bottom.
     But it's not totally nesscarry.
    
    
    Continue on with the mission.
    
    When you get all three symbol fragments you'll be able to go to the 
    final destination. (no pun intended).
    Also don't bother about trying to reach level 2. I've tried like 5 times and
     have never been  able to do it. Besides it'd be pointless anyways.......never
     mind just finsh up.
    
    Ok As you approch the beast statue you'll trigger a huge string of CG movies
     that will take awhile. So watch all of those and then come back and I'll give
     you some intresting details you might have over looked.
    
    ----------(Watch movies then come back to keep reading.)-------
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Start with a PK
    Short Version/Main points: Make note of the dude who saved Haseo. I find it 
    interesting that his shots from his gun- 1) kills in one hit, and 2) made the
    pker's character data flicker on the screen. Also,check out his arm.
    ----------------------------------
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Terror of Death
    Short Version/Main points: Haseo first off looks alot differnt from his 
    first form, thats because due to the events in .hack//ROOTS(an anime TV series)
    ,Haseo was able to gain huge amounts of strength: he also is in his Third 
    form (due to job extentions). And so you'll notice he kicks @$$. He's also 
    looking for Tri-Edge ,and Tri-Edge just happens to look ALOT like a character
    we all know and love, but more on that later. Also veterans of the old games
    will remember that there was something else in the series called the 
    Terror of Death..........?
    ----------------------------------
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Atoli
    Short Version/Main points: Atoli's voice is like nails on a chalk board...
    Arrggghh. Anyway, what you need to realise is that Atoli looks alot like Shino
    ...who was someone very special to Haseo. So...yeah, give the guy a break for
    being a reall @$$ hole at times. Anywho, Atoli may seem like she'd be a side 
    character, but she isn't. She ends up playing a big role. Also, Sakaki.....
    something about him that's a little........

    Movie- Reunion
    Short Version/Main points: Ok, Ovan is sweet and all but......well lets just 
    say he...is...well.....he knows more then he's letting on. What you need to 
    know about him is that everytime his glasses glare that red-orange color or 
    his face gets all dark, he's lieing about something  or planning something
    shaddy.
    ----------------------------------
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Tri-edge
    Short Version/Main points: That's right long time .Hack fans,
    Hidden Forbidden Holy Ground 
    is still around and it's as important as ever. And for those long time fans,
    yes that's right.....Tri-Edge looks alot like a character we all know and 
    love. But don't worry, the real him (in the real world) is in college in 'real
    life' so it cant really be him....maybe just his character data with a mind 
    of it's own now? 
    
    Haseo got his @$$ kicked big time. And look very very closly as the 
    movie ends. You see Haseo's line of sight for about a second or two. Look 
    closly at what he sees. You might recognize the out line of the person.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Ok so Obviously alot just happened.
    For now just check the e-mail and read.
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Ovan  : choices
    Short version: Ovan presents you with a choice. Conintue and find the truth.
    Or run away with your tail between your legs. Well Haseo, being the bad @$$
    he is decides he's not giving up, and no matter what it takes he's going to 
    help Shino.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    Ok Now it's time to put the main story on hold for a few minutes and do some
    reading. Flip over to the "News Capture".
    
    ----------------------------------
    -News-
    The first and most important thing is Online Jack. The Red section thing you
    can select. Online Jack is like the bonus disks that came with older games only
    these are built into the game and come in segments that become available  to 
    watch through out the game. I know the first one isn't that great, but the 
    others have some seriously intresting things going on that you really need to
    watch and pay attention to.
    
    Other then that, I'd read a bit here and there; It really gives you a great 
    feel for what their 'real world' is like. It's prety cool.Try watching the 
    small clips of news that they have, it's actually prety neat the way it's done.
    So read some articles and watch some stuff. If nothing else view it quickly 
    then back out of the artical so it doesn't say that it's new.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    Forum- 
    The forum (like the Board from the old games) is where you can view peoples
    posts from the story line. It's prety cool and they explain alot of stuff 
    there. Read what you want. Unlike the old games this board features a mass 
    read button. If you go into a forum and select a topic you can press the 
    triangle button and it will display all the repleys at once, aka it saves 
    time so you don't have to open every singel message by itself.
    
    Read what you like. View everything (even if just in mass) so that nothing's 
    left marked "New".You'll gain a bunch of Key words, so that's useful.
    
    -Under the Rumors Forum make sure to read the "Forest of Pain" Topic. Yes it's 
    some what important.
    
    -Also the "Apkallu" is a forum where players post art work. You can set these
    peices of art as back grounds for your desktop if you want to. Just View the 
    topics and press X while viewing the art to load it onto your 
    Accessories tools.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    -When you're done feel free to Save and Log-in.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    --Official Site
    
    If I were you I'd view the Offical Site and get some background info. on the 
    game's theme.But really the only important thing might be enemies and the Jobs
    (aka. Classes).
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    --Official Forum
    
    I highly suggest reading some of the stuff here. It's prety helpfull and if
    nothing else view topics en-mass to gain keywords.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Log-in to the game.
    Watch first then read ahead in guide.

    Yep that's right, You're back a level one. Sorry but you don't get to play as
    the level 133 Terror of Death. Well anyway, follow the instructions and see
    you in a bit. Go with the flow for now. Really there's not alot I can say
    at the moment. I'll comment here and there but really it's all prety straight
    forward.
    
    ---Blue circles on the map mark objectives.
    
    -So anyway you'll run into two guys who end up helping you out and end up 
    becoming your buddies. The guy in the green,Silabus is prety cool ,and a great
    swordsman. The short pink dude ,Gaspard, on the other hand is well not all 
    that great....->prety useless.
    
    ---Use green warp points to get around the city faster. It saves huge amounts
    of time.
    
    -You don't have any cash yet so no point in shoping.
    You might as well save and head for the area, nothing better to do. 
    
    ---The key words with check marks next to them are story based areas with 
    events that progress the story. If you're confused check the Memoir option
    in your Menue for hints.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------2)Peaceful,Leading ,Freedom-------
    	----------------------------
    Area Type- Jungel cave
    Area Level-3
    Party: Haseo,Silabus, Gaspard
    My level:1
    
    -And yeah, being called a noob kinda sucks, but they'll cut it out eventually. 
    Fight through the dungeon. It shouldn't be all that hard. Kill everything 
    so you can to level up as much as possible and make sure to use Rengekki 
    to get bonus exp.
    
    
    ---If you search along the edges of the dungeon you may find a steam switch
    you can kick. This allows you to collect Chim spheres. Basicly Chim spheres
    can power steam techknology. There are doors you will neeed to be opened
    with chim spheres. So take some time and get a bunch.
    
    -Treasure chests- That's right long time .Hack// fans. Trapped treasure 
    chests are back! But new and improved, These new chests shake instead of
    being blue and instead of using an item  to disarm traps, this game requires
    you to enter a button sequence before time runs out, and if it does run out
    you suffer a gun blast to the face. Also Look for Kickable/Breakable objects.
    
    -Awankening- this is basicly like a limit break attack. Awakening makes you 
    faster and stronger it's actually really good once you get the hang of it.
    If you use skills in awankening they are like uber powerful. So thats a good 
    thing. You can use the Awakening by filling the Moral guage. To fill the guage
    preform rengeki attacks and arts. When the guage is full press the Square  
    button. There are two type of awankenings for the first game. And you 
    chose which one you want from the Menue.
    
    -Magic using party members- For the veterans of the .Hack series. You'll
    be happy to know that unlike the magic users of the old games who would
    stand around and wait to get killed; Clerics and Warlocks in this game
    will atuo. block if an enemy comes near. They may attempt one or two 
    weak attacks then they will beat a hasty retreat to another part of the 
    battle area where they will continue to attack from a range. 
    
    Anyway eventually you'll make it to the Beast statue. Well that's about
     the time when things get intresting. Remember the Pkers from before. 
    Yeah, well they decide to pay you a visit. Just watch and enjoy the movies.
     Come back when they're over.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Pi
    Short Version/Main points: She looks like a slut in the game
    but is a serious bussiness woman in the real world. She's
    actually very mature despite her sluty outfit.
    Anyway, Pi saves your butt from the Pkers.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Well now you're back in control. Let me just mention two things,
    First is that you get a ranking on how well you did in an area once you
    leave it, and the better you do, the better the reward you get when you're 
    done. Rewards range from cheap items to getting newer and  better keywords 
    for the chaos gate. The second thing is that the dangerous power Pi was talking
    about would have something to do with The Terror of Death.
    
    Anyway..... After all those scenes and everything; I'd say Haseo has had one 
    long  day. So far today he's: Killed a group of Pkers, met Atoli, reunited with
    Ovan, Got his butt kicked by Tri-Edge,got leveled down to level 1 from 133, 
    almost  got killed by a group of Pkers that he killed earlier, told by Pi 
    that his character holds a dangerous power, and has had Atoli  (the girl with
    a voice like nails on a chalk board) join your member list. 
    
    So anyway, after a long day,
    you have two choices:the first is to walk around the city and get a good feel 
    for the lay out and see what shops sell what and get a feel for what's what.
    I suggest doing this now as I'm sure it will help you later and the city 
    really is prety cool to explore. After that the last option is just to log-out
    and check some e-mails, Forums, and news.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Pi  : Remember this
    Short version: Basicly she re-caps on what she said eariler.
    Also, make sure to reply: "Who are you?"
    ----------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Hi!  : Gaspard
    Short version: Just some stuff about you being the Terror of Death.
    Make sure to reply: "Tri-Edge".
    ----------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Silabus  : No way!
    Short version: Again, some stuff about you being 
    the Terror of Death. Reply: "Like what?"
    ----------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Silabus  : Quests
    Short version: He explains about quests, aka side jobs. 
    These 'side jobs' are little side quests that ussally only 
    require you to visit like one area. They render good rewards
    and it's a good idea to do as many as you can, but with 
    everything that'll be happening, you may not finish all of them
    till the end of the game.
    ----------------------------------
    
    -You need to complete the quest Silabus 
    was talking about in order to advance the story, so make sure to 
    check the forum, save, and 
    then log-in.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    Head for the blue circle on the map. When you get to the quest shop, add 
    Silabus and Gaspard to your party. Then, accept the quest from the Quest
     shop. Once you've done that head for the 
    Chaos Gate. 
    
    --Equipment materials--
    Before you head off I should mention that if you get lucky you'll get some
    materials for your weapons or armor or accessories. What you can do is add 
    those materials to your equipment to give them added bonuses. I got very 
    very lucky when I played this time  through as I was writing the guide 
    and got the Weapon material that gives you extra fire damage bonus, It was
    already on a weapon that I got from a beast statue, so when you go to customize
    weapons, don't forget to check all your equipment for materials that can be 
    taken off usless equipment and put on you good stuff.  Oh and by the way, 
    for now use any old material for your equipment cause something is better 
    the nothing. Remember that you can put materials into your equipment AND 
    the equipment of your party members by using the Customize option. Later,
    however I'll be giving you my set up that I use for me and my party members.
    
    Well enough of that, head off for the quest area.
    
    
    
    		Quest:Crown Quest
    	----------------------------
    -------3) Chasing, Cupid's, Phantom (Q)-------
    	----------------------------
    Area Type: Temple
    Area Level:5
    Party: Haseo,Silabus, Gaspard
    My Level: 4
    In this area you;ll meet enemies that look like blue tigers. They use a magic
    watter attack spells. You can tell when you're going to be attacked by the red
    circles on the ground comming toward you. Make sure to hold the block button 
    or suffer a blast of magic in the face.
    
    -This quest is really easy. All you have to do is keep on going through the
    dungeon till you run into a Lucky animal. If you kick it, it will summon 
    King Chim Chim. The way you do this is: Kick the King three times in a row then
    run away. He'll jump at you and miss. Then, repeat till he's toast. You'll 
    auto. warp back to town.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    Once back you'll auto. finish the quest. You will recive something called 
    the Text of Wisdom; these items will permanently raise someone's stats. 
    However you will ALWAYS want to use this kind of item on ONLY Haseo. 
    
    ----------
    IMPORTANT!
    ----------
    
    In this guide I will NOT cover the normal quests until the post game section.
    However I will admit that it is better do them through out the game as they
    become avalible. If you wish to complete the normal quest through out 
    the game instead of waiting till the end, then I suggest you take time 
    to do so as you see fit. I suggest that, instead of going out and 
    leveling up (as you will be doin alot of that) you should instead go 
    and make time to do some quests in between training. They're  rather  
    enjoyable,but repetitive. It's up to you if you want the rewards but 
    it's not entirely necessary.  If you wish to see any advice I can 
    offer on  the topic please look for my section on them near the buttom 
    of the guide.
    
    
    Time to do a small bit of shopping. Head over to the mercenary  district via 
    warp point. Head to the weapon shop. You need to do some shopping.
    
    -Armor and weapons-
    Ok What you need to understand about armor is:
    Haseo uses Heavy class armor, Silabus used Light class
    armor, and people like Gaspard and Atoli use light robes. 
    Weapons: Haseo uses Twin swords and later, broad swords. Silibus uses a
    one-handed style sword, Gaspard uses a magic book, and Atoli uses a staff.
    
    Sell/Buy:
    
    Sell all weapons and armor under level 10.
    Sell all scrolls.
    
    Buy:
    Nothing-> at this point you probably don't have enough cash to buy just about
    anything. Well at least at this store. 
    
    --For now why don't you head back to the chaos gate and take Silibus and 
    Gaspard out to level up a bit and earn some cash. Just keep using the Random
    button until you find an area that's level 6 or if you're brave level 7. But
    I wouldn't suggest level 7 just yet. Anyway in terms of Area type I much 
    perfer the Field type area over a Dungeon type field. Reason being is that you
    can get around easier and therefore gain exp faster. But that's just me.
    -If you do decide to go to a dungeon type area make sure to keep an eye open
    for "Trap Rooms".
    
    
    -Trap Rooms: these are rooms in a dungeon that contial a huge amount of traps
     that inflict damage on  you and your party members. There are the folowing
    types of traps: Spike Pad, Shearch Light,and Steam Piston. 
    
    Spike pads are tiles on the room's floor. Every few seconds spikes pop
    out. You can safly cross them when the spikes are down. 
    
    Shearch Lights 
    are just that, shearch lights, but unlike what you normally think of as 
    one big flash light, these suckers will shoot an explosive mortar at you if
    you walk into the light area on the ground. 
    
    Finally Steam Pistons look like small metal 
    pillars. These things have a piston that fills with hot steam and then 
    shoots it out of a hole once it's full. They take a few seconds to fill so
    if you time it right you can pass by with out injury.

    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    Ok as you get back to town I should tell you that I was able to get two 
    Materials called Turtle shell. This armor Material provided -10% physical
    damage. And is in fact one of the  better materails in the game and it's
     what I'm using on Haseo and Silabus.
    
    Well anyway, time to do some more shopping. Head over to the Mercenary 
    district. Once you've customized your party's equipment feel free to sell
     off any other materials. They acctually sell for a good amount and will
     bring in enough cash to buy some new twin blades. At the Mercenary Weapon
     shop you'll find a pair of level 4 Dual Swords. Go ahead and buy them. And
     Don't forget to move your Weapon's material from your old weapon to your 
    new twin blades so they will now have the added effect instead of
    your old swords.
    
    Well anyway that's about all there is to do for now, Log-out and check some
    e-mails.
    
    --note*- For those who played the old games and coverted the saved game data 
    you'll  recieve an e-mail from BlackRose that she wrote to Kite after the
    old games ended.
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  BlackRose  : Well done
    Short version: It gives you a glance into the things that 
    happened after the games ended and how things turned out 
    for the old gang. As you read you can tell that things really 
    ended up kind of sad for everyone. I mean you basicly find
    out that after the 2nd network crisis CC Corp. was glad and 
    all that they didn't all get arrested for covering up the facts
    that their game was putting players into comas and that they
    were respondsible for huge amounts of property and financial losses. 
    Granted I don't have all the official details from manga or anything,
    but I heard from some people at www.dothackers.net that CC Corp. didn't
    acknowledge the .hackers for what they did, and basicly let everyone
    say what they wanted to. This led to a large amount of their story
    being left to rumors and so the true story was NEVER made public. 
    As a consequence they were able to  ban several people who were involved
    with the whole situation. From what I understand; The player of Kite went 
    on to graduate Highschool and went to college and at this point has no idea
    that anything is presently wronge with the game. However I can confirm that
    several of the .hackers are still playing the game and are characters in the
    GU game series. Who they are, however, I can't say for now.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Horkuto  : To Lena
    Short version: Basicly Horkuto is the main character of the AI buster novels,
    and he's sending an e-mail to Lena. Lena played as a character called Rena 
    with her brother Shugo in the .hack// Legend of the Twlight. The series was 
    only 12 episodes long and took place after the old games and before the new 
    anime series .Hack//ROOTS. What you need to know is that Shugo and Lena 
    won a 'contest' that got them exclusive characters that looked like the
    legendary .hackers: Kite and BlackRose. The contest was  actually made 
    by Aura not CC Corp. Aura needed their help to fight against a vagrant
    AI that was causing a huge amount of trouble. So with the help of Bulmung,
    Sanjuro, and some friends they were able to put a stop to the mess. If 
    I were you I'd read the whole thing, it's actually intresting once you 
    read all of it. Anyway that's about the sum of things.

    -E-mail- Atoli   : Lets get going
    Short version: You need to go with her to advance the story line.
    ----------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-   CC Corp. : Campaign notice
    Short version:  after completing certian quests you can
     continue to work for the guys/girls that gave you the quests. 
    They will reward you as you continue to do things for them. In this
    case the Dr. who gave you the quest wants you to collect info. on the
    Chim Chims...I think.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    Well looks like You need to go meet Atoli. So Save and log-in.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    As you log-in you'll see a seen with Atoli. You'll be going alone 
    with her to her area. And despite what you might think, this won't 
    be boring.

    My level:6
    
    As you enter the area you start to realize just how much of an @$$ hole
     Haseo really is. Of course it doesn't help that 
    Miss I-have-a-voice-like-nails-on-a-chalkboard is completly an air
    head. And yeah of course just looking at Atoli is a constant reminder of 
    someone who  special to him....... Anyway I'll say more about that later.
    
    For now though there's really only one thing you can do: head out to collect
     the symbol fragments to get to the beast statue. Everything is prety much 
    straight forward. The bridges are all in one path that lead to the Beast statue
     so no worries about getting side tracked.
    
    --Also note that Atoli speclizes in healing magic, and is very very
    good at it. Even more so when she gets to some higher levels:
     *cough she's one of your most valuable party members Cough*
    
    For now just keep moving and come back to read when you reach the 
    Beast Statue....
    
    
    
    
    Ok you're back, As you open a treasure chest some scenes will start.
     For now go with the flow.  This will take awhile so when everything 
    is done and you're looking for a way out of the area come back and read 
    somemore......

    Short Version/Main points: 
    Ok,first off that Fabio prety
    boy with the cat. And how he was playing with that black matter:
    Very odd. Anyway, The guy who comes to save the day gives you a
    look at some very important things about the story. For the Vetrans 
    of .Hack you'll know the name Magus very well as the name of the 
    third phase. And if Magus is a phase...then the Terror of Death is.....
    aaaahhh, never mind. Anyway, Kuhn gives you his member adress. *woot!*
     I know he kinda looks.....differnt but Kuhn is amzing sweet.
    ----------------------------------
    
    So anyway, Since you're already at the Lost Grounds take the time to explore 
    the area and enjoy. Because you won't be comming back anytime soon and no,
     you can't just waltz in. It's kinda a  one time thing. Well, if you 
    head to the back of the cave after looking around. You'll see a short loading
     sceen then you'll find a Platform that will take you back to town.

    Short version: He goes over what I've been talking about with customization.
    But it'd be a good idea to read the e-mail and see if his explaination makes 
    more sense then mine.

    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-   Silabus : I Almost forgot
    Short version: This teaches you some finer deatials about the combat system.
     I Highly suggest reading this because it saves me having to write about it

    -E-mail-  Atoli  : Hello, Haseo
    Short version: She re-caps on the days events. And 
    brings up some intresting points. Make sure to reply: "Sound"
    ----------------------------------
    
    
     Well, Kuhn is waiting so log-in and lets go see him in the Mercenary District.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    Us the warp point to go to the mercenary district to meet Kuhn.
    GO with the flow and listen to what he has to say, Ignore Haseo being an 
    A**hole. Come back afterward and read so I can recap on everything that 
    was discussed later.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    As you can see, Haseo and Pi still have issues. Hehe. As you can tell Yata
    knows quite a bit about whats going on....yet maybe not so much. But one 
    thing's for sure, he's seen things like this happen before in "The World" 
    Which very possibly why he makes a far better Admin. then Lios ever was, 
    and is why he doesn't have a problem with a certian hacker running.....oh 
    wait...I probably shouldn't tell you that just yet.  Enough said. 
    
    Well whatever, All I need say is that he's a character that the vetran 
    .hack players would know from the old games as a.....well how do I say it:
     He is.....well he helped organize the alliance between the admins and 
    the hackers to fight the cursed wave in the old games, and worked closly
    with Helba.
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Serpent of Lore
    Short Version/Main points: It's an Admin room, and
     I'd say Yata has been expecting Haseo for sometime now.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Everything else is pretty well explained.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
     As you re-enter Man Anu they give you a hint to check out the guild shops. So
    head over to central district. Head for the blue circle. Watch some scenes with
     Silabus and Gaspard. They send you on a little side quest. Use your map and 
    buy the need items. Good luck.
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Small customer
    Short Version/Main points: You get stuck watching the shop. And soon you have a
    customer. Hehe, isn't she...ahhh he?, she?.....anyway, isn't it cute =P. So 
    yeah I love how Haseo shows that he actually has a heart when he's dealing 
    with Bo.  hehe, times like this where I love Haseo's personality.
    ----------------------------------
    
    For the vetrans of .hack : What do you remember from the third game that 
    is one thing over-all but has two personalites and are twins?.....BINGO   
       (if you got it).
    
    You meet Atoli, HAHAHA I LOVE HIS FACE when he sees her!! HAHAHAHA!. But then
     Haseo returns to his normal ***hole-ness.
    So eventually you'll see Kuhn who said he had a 'appointment' to keep....
    yeah he's a womanizer..lol. Hehehe, wow Kuhn used to be a steady guy when he 
    used to date a girl in his highschool. I mean she played a mojor role in
    allowing the final battle between the .hackers and the final phase to continue.
     But thats off topic and .Hack fans may know who that makes him.....*cough 
    third best player of "The World:R1" before Kite came along cough*
    
    - Haseo brings up the point that he is the way he is because of the Pkers, 
    Ovan, and Shino.
    
    -And then Haseo is offered the position of Guild Master, intresting.
    
    
    ---------Afterwards----
    -So for now, there's not a huge amount of stuff to do, so log-out.
    -Check the official Forum for some more keywords that you'll be needing.
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail- Kuhn   : That Thing
    Short version: Kuhn wants to help you now to try and summon your avatar.
     Better meet in Mac Anu.
    ----------------------------------
    
    First however, you need to check out the other e-mails and stuff.
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Kuhn  : Nice to meet you.
    Short version: He's just greeting you to Raven. Really it doesn't 
    matter what you reply but I always reply with: "Yata"
    ----------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------
    -News-

    Read if you like.

    ----------------------------------
    Forum Topic- Thankyou
    Short Version: it's from Sakubo, just kinda 
    neat little message for you.
    ----------------------------------
    
    ----------------------------------
    Forum Topic- Rumors- Black Point
    Short Version: just kind of intresting. 
    Not really anything other then that.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    Save then log-in. Well, I'm gana catch some Zzzzs and then continue
     writing later.
    
    
    Ok well after a good night's sleep I'm ready to go again.
    As you log-in you'll meet Kuhn who gives you some key words as your 
    destination. And Haseo called Pi an old hag again. But at the end you 
    recive her member adress *WOOT*. Also, for anyone wondering Pi is called 
    'The Avenger', just like Haseo is the Terror of Death. So moving on, You 
    have new key words and that means a new objective. So Invite Kuhn and Pi 
    into your party. Before we get moving you should take the opertunity to go
     under the Stradgey Option in your Main menu and set Pi to healing. The reason
    for this is that she doesn't do as much physical damage as Kuhn does, and you
     need someone to act as a healer just in case. Also, change Kuhn from "Rage" to
    "Free-will". When that's done use the Chaos gate and lets get moving.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------5)Great,  Cursed,  InLaws    -------
    	----------------------------
    Area Type: Field
    Area Level:8
    Party: Haseo,Pi, Kuhn
    My level: 7
    
    
    Ok to re-cap on all of that, Haseo is able to summon an Avatar, and Avarats
    have the ability to Data Drain. Data Drain is the ability to forcefully 
    alter data. Players of the older .hack games will understand what I'm talking 
    about. They may also understand why it is that Tri-Edge was able to use Data 
    Drain without  summoning an Avatar. But for those who don't know....well you'll
    just have to wait and see. Eventually I'll make sure to include an 
    explaniation.
    
    For now all you need to do is make your way to the Field's Boss monster. It's
     marked on the map by a pair of crossed swords. Take into mind that there are 
    other areas that the field's objective is to defeat a boss monster instead of
     collecting symbol fragments. Also use the company of Pi and Kuhn to your 
    avantage: They're both level around level 14, you're level 7-8 use this field
    to train a bit and kill a good amount of monsters to train Level up. Other 
    then that just make you're way over to the boss. Enjoy the scenes and I'll talk
     to you when you head back to Mac Anu.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    Well when you get back you see some sceens with Kuhn and Pi. Afterwards
     you'll left alone. Now would be the perfrect time to do some leveling up. And
     Believe me you will be doing ALOT of that shortly down the road, and it'd be
    best for you to get a drop on things now while certian party members are
    avalible to join you. So invite Silabus and Atoli to your party an 
    then you'll be heading off for an area. I would randomly chose an area
     to go to.
    
    	----------------------------
    -----**) (Random),(Random),(Random)-------
    	----------------------------
    Area Type:Field
    Area Level: 11
    Party:Haseo,Silabus, Atoli
    My level: 9
    
    While in this level of area, you may or may not come across an item called 
    Blade Thorns; its a level 10 sword that Silabus can use. 
    
    IMPORTANT NOTE!!!- DO NOT give a party members a peice of
    equipment that they are not high enough level to equip. They will NOT equipe
     weapons/armor/accessories when they reach a higher level and it will stay 
    useless in their inventory. If this happens you WILL have to give them ANOTHER
     peice of equipment when they reach a high enough level.
    
    I sugest you give him one and then customize it.
    
    Also, I found some level 10 heavey armor awhile back and Haseo should be level
     10 after you train at this time, so I'd equipe it to him and customize. Also
    I got lucky and found a Brave Braclet accessory. It had a material called Arts
     Knowledge. This is very very useful Material. If you find any extra; make 
    sure to give one to Silabus who will diffentally need it. when you're done 
    doing things head on back to town.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    Time to do some shopping. Head over to the Mercenary district.
    
    Sell anything and eveything you don't need:
    Sell/Buy
    
    *note-Make sure to remove all materials from equipment before you sell it.
    
    -Sell scrolls (magic attack spells)
    -Sell extra materials: (Don't sell the following materials- Arts Knowledge,
    Turtle Schell,Fire mouse, Keep one Olm Schell to give to Atoli.)
    -Sell warrior's blood, Knight Blood, ect.
     (things that increase or decrease stats temporarily; DONT SELL FAIRY'S ORBS)
    -Sell all equipment under level 10; keep one levl 10 sword for Silibus if you
     havent given him one already. Keep one level 10 robe for Atoli, keep one level
     10 heavey armor for Haseo if you havn't equiped one already. 
    -Sell any level 15 accessories (they are not good to have despite their level.)
    
    -Buy the set of level 8 twin blades
    -Buy level 10 light armor for Silabus
    
    When you're done give the ;level 10 armor to Silabus, give the Olm schell to
    Atoli to customize her staff with and then log-out.

    Short version: Silabus re-caps on somethings about how you're going
    to be the new guild master of Canard. Personally I think it's sweet 
    that you get to run a guild, not to mention the perks that come with 
    it. But more on that later. Honestly I just wish you could go around
    and recruit people to join the guild. That would be amazing.

    -E-mail-   CC Corp. : Guild Master Change Request.

    	----------------------------
    
    Ok then, Head over to the mercenary district to where you entered Raven, 
    Instead of chosing Raven select Canard instead.
    
    watch the scenes, lol, its funny to see Haseo's peronaility thrown back in
     his face. Point being is that you need to go around the city to three
     locations and talk to the grunty  characters. It's not hard at all and
     I won't insult your intelligence  by telling you all the step by step detials
     cause it'd be pointless. I'll only note that the Grunites you talk to look 
    and have the personalites of several guild masters in the game: The one with
     the white beard looks like Gabi (Kestral), The one in the red hat looks like
     Yata, and the one with the purple hat ,and has horns is like Moon Tree's guild
    master Zelkova. Good luck and  when you got all three head back to 
    Canard's @Home.
    
    When you get back to Canard @Home you'll see yet another scene. Then head over
     to the central district. In the course of events Sakubo pays you back for the
    favor he owed you. Finally head back to the @Home one last time.
    
    Ok to re-cap of What Death grunty talked about. Many of the old .hack fans will
    remember the Ryu book from the old games. Now you can prety much do the same
    thing here but with your guild. The biggest difference I noticed was that these
    Books of 1000 are: 1)alot cooler 2)are easyier to complete, and 3) you get 
    way better rewards.
    
    Go ahead and talk to death grunty.
    -View Storage-This bascily takes the place of the Elf Haven in the old games.
    You can store up to 40 items in this. Thats very very useful. Use the R1 and L1
     buttons to switch between viewing your inventory and viewing the storage.
    
    -Guild Shop- This has to be the one of the bests things I like about the 
    new games. Here you can view your inventory. You can select up to 5 items to be
    put on display in the shop. What will happen is that when you get equipment
    from Areas you can put them on display at your guild shop. Gaspard will sell
    the items for you and if you talk to him later he'll give you the cash. This
    means that you get almost the full value for the items rather then selling it
    for less at other NPC shops. AKA more money for you. It takes a bit more time
    to get the money buy it pays ALOT more.
    
    -Book of 1000- here you can view different stats about your adventures thus 
    far.By pressing X you can view some more detialed info about what has been
     left un filled in, but don't worry too much about it, you'll have filled 
    most everything in by the time you finish the game with only a little extra
    work to do. Anyway when all the guages fill to 1000 your guild will raise 
    one rank. This allows you to buy a guild upgrade that will expand your 
    facilites. Very useful.
    
    
    Well enough of that. I sure you're dieing to try the steam bike so head out
     to the city.
    
    Listen to Death Gunrty explain the bike controls. Aside from what he said
     I want to add that if you hold the break button then hold the gas button 
    together and release the break, you will preform a Wheelie. Also if you
     gain enough speed on the bike and you jerk the joy stick down and  to the
     right/left you will preform a power-slide.
    
    Try it out and have fun. Afterward there really not alot to do but log-out.
    
    The Official Forum has some new topics.

    Greeting cards- These things are like little friendly cards you cans end your
     party members. You can feel free to send them to anyone you want but I found 
    that Pi and Kuhn have some of the more intresting things to say being that 
    their characters are devolped as much as the others are. Not to mention that
     have a bigger role to play in the story line then the others
    except maybe Atoli. So chose who you want.

    Well then. Not that that's over with time to log-in and head to the new town.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Lumina Cloth	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    As you enter there'll be quite a few scenes, go ahead and watch them.
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Emperor
    Short Version/Main points: just his entrance movie.
    ----------------------------------
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Avatar Macha
    Short Version/Main points: Yeah many will reconize Macha as the sixth phase.
    As you can tell Endrance just owned that party. And for anyone paying 
    attention, you may start to put two and two together to figure out who 
    Endrace was in the old games......
    ----------------------------------
    
    Chase after Ovan to see some scenes with him and then some other people.
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Other Sukubo
    Short Version/Main points: Yeah that'd be the sister, 
    and she's a b*tch. But anyway, the scenes are some what
     humorus.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Basicly what happend is that Haseo decided that he's going to challenge 
    the Emperor for his title to 'prove his power'. Unfortunitaly this is where
     Haseo really starts to show just how much of an @$$hole he can be at times.
     But anywho, it's decided that Atoli and Silabus will be in your party for 
    the arena....at least that is if Atoli joins you. 
    
    -Like Silabus said before, if you're going to challenge the Emperor then 
    there's somethings you need to realize: 1) is that to be able to fight Endrance
     you'll have to break into the top 16 Arena teams to even enter the tourtament.
     2) is that you will need to be well over level 20 in order to even just hold
     your own in the fights. 3) is that you need Atoli and 4) I'll add in that
    Endrance is level 45......yeah you got a LONG way to go yet.
    So these are the goals you'll be working toward for awhile, nothing else
     really matters.
    
    Alright first and formost is that you need Atoli; reason being is that you and
    your party needs to begin training. So lets deal with that first. Go ahead and
     log-out to check you're e-mails.

    I'm going to cover who I sent mine to and what type of info I got from them.

    greeting cards down the road so don't worry if it seems like nothing intresting
     is being said just yet.

    you can attempt it. I'll cover it eventually in my guide, just not right now.

    This is where things get really really bad. Just follow along and
    eventually head for the beast statue. watch the scenes 
    along the way too. Also, feel free to try out the steam bike in
     the open fields.
    But be warned this event is when everything is gana hit the fan;it's bad.
    
    -Oh yeah, for those who played the old games and enjoyed the back story
    to the old games you might care to know that in the game's back story, the time
    period is now 100 years ahead of where it was in the old games. And you might 
    also be wondering what happened to all the old Root Towns from the old game.
    Well see what happened is the gods got pissed at the people and cast down 
    Fort Ouph from the sky, on it's way down it crashed into Dun Loireag on the 
    mountian tops. So both cities were destroyed. Also Carmina Gadelica was
    destroyed from war and the gods wrath. The original OMEGA SERVER 
    (not Net Slum, the  original sever that was too unstable to use and was 
    replaced by  Helba's Net Slum) Was the location of the crest Gun and 
    was destroyed when it was fired into the sky at the gods. 
    
    so there's a small explaination why you probably won't be seeing the other 
    servers other the Mac Anu in the new game. Too bad though, I really liked 
    Carmina Gadelica. It was by far my favorite town of all time. So anyway.
    On with the present story:
    
     I'll make some points here and there:
    -Haseo's name does have a very intresting meaning which ,I believe in the
    second game, reveals some very surprising facts about the real life Haseo.
    -Haseo is starting to get Pissed cause she is really at times starting to
     remind him of Shino, and well I mean that's like taking a stake and driving
    it through his heart and then twisting it very very slowly so it hurts like
     hell. So yeah, give the guy a break.
    -This is when he snaps.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    As you can tell Haseo was having trouble dealing with everything. I mean Atoli
     doesn't know about Shino, and she just told him to slow down, aka stop
     worrying about saving Shino. At least that's kinda what it came across to 
    Haseo. And you can imagine how hard that'd be for
    him. He visits the hospital to see the real life Shino everyday.......
    
    Anyway, now that that's over with, head back to Canard.
    After the scenes, not much left to do. Log-out and check your new e-mail.

    As you leave Atoli trys to call out to you. You also see Sakubo 
    as the sceen ends.
    
    Just keep going and try to find the beast Statue, that's all I can really say.
    It's a low level area so you shouldn't have any problems.

    --------Now then FINIALLY....it is time.
    It's time to prepare yourself for the rest of the game. This section of the
     game is critical, the things you do here will set the tone for how you play
    the rest of the game. More on that
    in a second. First off you need to warp over to the Chaos Gate and get your
     party together.
    
    Ok then You need to read everything here first so you understand how your
    choices at this point are going to affect the game.
    
    At this point you will be starting into the Arena. This place is where you can
     fight other players for rankings. The Demon Palace is the class of Arena 
    battle you'll be taking part in. They span anywhere from level 1 up to level 
    50 players. You are level like 10. That means you have somethig you need to do
     very badly. Level up.....like alot. But here's the thing. The story line/ game
    creators only want you to level up to 20; I, on the other hand ussally level
     up to level 30 . WHY? Because it makes things ALOT easier in the rest of the
     game. BUT it takes away from the affect of the story line, 
    so here's your choices at this point: Option A or Option B.
    
    "What about Option C?"
    "Travis, there is no Option C."
    "What? You sure..I mean there's always an option C."
    -* the Rock kicks his @$$*-
    
    Lol a little Humor from the movie Run Down.
    
    Anywho,.....
    
    Option A
    You follow the story line more or less how it's suposed to go, the difference
     is that you don't advance the story line right now until you are level 20. 
    At which point you  start into the arena battles. From there you wait until
     'The Old Man' makes you do his challenge. Again at which point you level 
    up till you hit level 30. From there you just continue on like normal with
     the story. 
    Pros- makes the game easier.
    Cons- The game wants you to be kind of weak for the first round in the 
    tourtament and several other battles; and you won't be at all, so you take 
    away from the effect of the story.
    
    Option B
    You go to Lumina Cloth now and continue the story, then you level up here 
    and there as you  progress the story, you'll be about level 22 or 23 for the 
    first round of the tourtament. The rest of the game will require you to 
    constantly level up in between tourtament rounds. But the story will coninue 
    like normal and how the game creators intended it to be.
    
    
    --In this guide I'll be going with Option A because honestly I hate doing it 
    any other way,I could handle doing it normally the first time I played the game
     but not anymore. So if you want to take Option B feel free to do so, but 
    unfortunitally I just won't cover it in this 
    guide, really it all depends on how you like to play the game. It's up to you.
    
    
    ---The Plan--
    
    Regardless of what Option you go with you'll need to follow my instructions
    until further notice. I'll let you know when you'll need to make the choice
     between which Option you want to go with. So yeah, for now keep folowing
     the guide.

    When you get back to town: Save game,Buy healing items,Work to upgrade

     of healing items you can carry, give your extras to Atoli) I should note
     now that you cant use items in the Arena, which means the only way to heal
     anyone is to learn healing spells. You can buy the scrolls to learn 
    healing spells from the Magic shop in the mercenary distric. Get into the
     habit of doing this everytime you get back from going out to an Area. 
    Afterward guess what you get to do.....train more.

    Ok By this time my entire party got prety lucky with the Areas I got and were
     able to get to Level 21. Now then. If you're going to go with:
    
    --> Option A I suggest that you continue reading
    but just dont pay any attention to the fact that In some places I'm going
    to make time for leveling up. In other words don't worry about leveling up
    until after the 1st round in the tourtament.

    Being that you've just been training alot make sure to take care of the chores:
    Save game,Buy healing items,Work to upgrade equipment, and Restock
     the Guild Store.
    
    
    Buy/Trade/Find from treasure chest:
    (Haseo)Level 18 Twin swords-Customize with Fire attack 
    (Can find in a level 18-20 Area)
    (Haseo) Level 20 Heavey Armor- Customize with -10% Physical damage
    (Haseo) level 20 accessory- Customize with Arts Knowledge
    (Atoli)Level 15 Staff- Customize with Water attack

    (Silabus)level 20 accessory (- Customize with Arts Knowledge 
    
    Oppenents in the Arena use added bonuses to their weapons like Curse,
     Poision, and Sleep. So,If I were you I would take the time to buy the 
    three status healing scrools from the magic shop and use them on Atoli
    so she can heal your Status aliments. Durning Battle.
    
     Now that you spent all that time training. I'd say you're due for a break. 
    Go ahead and log-out so you can check your e-mail.

    -E-mail-  Gaspard  : Useful info.
    Short version: He tells you about a quest. It is also like that last quest,

    make SURE to reply: Resident of the Forest.   As in the Forest

    Make sure to save.
    Head to the Arena counter and watch the scenes.
    You'll find yourselves in the Waiting room. The Waiting room is a prety cool
     place. Here you'll find information on your opponents on one of the wall 
    screnes and on the other you'll find the current rankings. Use the warp point
    to Continue to the fight. as you can see your first opponets are only like 
    level 10. You will literly kill them 
    in one hit. See you on the other side.
    
    
    
    How'd it go? You really own them? Personially for me I was able to take out 
    their whole party with 3 attacks.
    
    Anyway, here's the thing, if you're going to compete you have got to raise
     your ranking. So get to it!
    
    Everytime you finish a battle return to the Arena Counter and register for the
     next fight. I would pick the Limited Battles. That way you don't get matched 
    against a really strong team by random chance in the Survival battles. What
     you want to do is to keep fight those teams that  are either rated 'EVEN' 
    normally or 'Slightly-Strong' if you feel brave. Anyway Keep fighting, don't
     stop. Also, Just remember that you really really need to get good at counter
     attacking. Just remember that when your oppenents are about to use an arts on
     you, you have to counter attack by using the arts on them first before they
    can pull of the attack on you. That's really all the advice I can think of;
    just keep your eyes and ears open for those arts. And don't forget, you can 
    use charged attacks on them but then again they can use em on you too.
    
    You have to gain about 600Wp (also called ranking points) After that make 
    sure to log out and
    check some e-mails. You got some important things to do:

     Unfortunitally, unlike at the begining of the game, your visit here this 
    time will not be so .....great. Personially I'd rather have Haseo Pked by
     Tri-Edge AGAIN then what's about to happen here.
    
    I want to throw up just thinking about it: just go to the front doors and 
    go in. I'll cry with you in a bit after you watch the scenes, and please long

     and to be competly honest, I simply don't use him in my party unless forced 
    to, thankfully you are not required to spend money and time on the worthless
     peice of crap to progress the story line, so be thankfull for
    at least that.

    Ok this place is Confussing. Like ALOT. The deal with this place is that 
    there's one big maze that you have to go through to be able to reach the 
    Beast statue, and it's not as easy as using a Fairy Orb to reveal all the
     map either. See there's a bunch of warp points and only one of them 
    will take you to the Beast Statue. Antares will send you flash mails to 
    give you hits on how to beat it but I'll do better then That. I'll 
    walk you through it.
    
    o =Warp point
    [] =Is a room
    - =is a Passage way
    w= the finial warp point from the middle
    
    
    This map only shows the path you need to follow, it doesnt mark
    every warp point or rooms, just the ones you need to know about.

    	 |
    	 o
    	 |
    	[ ]-o-[ ]-o-[ ]-{}-[start]
    
    --------------------------------------------
    Ok this map gives you an idea of what you need to do to get to the end
    but I'll explain it in words.
    *note*- dont use any warp points in the middle of a room until you get to
     the FINIAL warp point in the center. The monsters in a room will 
    ussaly be guarding the door you need to go through to get to the correct 
    warp point. Keep that in mind.
    
    
    1) head west, ignore the warp point in the middel of the room, head right to
     the one farthest to the left, use it.
    2) head west again and use the west most warp point. Now head north and use 
    the warp point.
    3) head north again and use that warp point.
    4) Now head east and use the east most warp point.
    5)Go east again and use the east warp point.
    6) Now head south and use the warp point.
    7) Now head west again and use that warp point
    8) You should now be in the center of the dungeon. Use the warp point in the 
    center of the room. It will take you to the Beast statue.
    --As you Approch the Beast Statue you'll see a sceen with Antares:
    9) Grab the beast statue treasure and warp back to town.

    Before we get back to Arena battle you have some very important leveling 
    up to do. This is the last chance before the Tourtament to level up and 
    get ready. So if you plan on  folowing Option A: Then I suggest you get your
    party and head out for a good training area. If you're going with Option B: 
    Don't go and train but pay attention to eveything else.

    When you get back to town keep in mind this list of equipment, also I note that
    by this time you should have graduated from the mercenary distric weapon
    store to the Alchmey  District store:
    
    
    Buy/Trade/Find from treasure chest:
    (Haseo)Level 30 Twin swords-Customize with Fire attack 
    (Can find in a level 18-20 Area)
    (Haseo)Level 30 Broad sword-Customize with +10% Critial Hit or fire attack
    (Haseo) Level 27 Heavey Armor- Customize with -10% Physical damage
    (Haseo) level 24 accessory- Customize with Arts Knowledge
    (Atoli)Level 15 Staff- Customize with Water attack
    (Atoli)level 28 Robes- Customize with -10% Physical damage
    (Atoli) Level 24 accessory- Customize with Heal Knowledge 
    (Silabus)Level 17 Sword- Customize with fire attack 
    (from weapons shop in Alchemy Destrict)
    (Silabus) Level 28 light armor- Customize with -10% Physical damage
    (Silabus)level 24 accessory (- Customize with Arts Knowledge 
    
    I realize that you and your party probably won't be able to use most
     of the stuff yet, but after the next Area for leveling up, you should, 
    or at least be close. If you are going with Option B and are not leveling 
    up, make sure to save this list of equipment till later.

    Log-out and you'll have an e-mail about the Tourtamant, read it and log
     back in.
    
    As you register for the Tourtament you'll see a scene with Sakubo. It's 
    the sister today and she's a lil Bit*h like normal. After the scenes log-out
     and check your e-mail.

    Log-in to see a scene with Kuhn. And thats when you find out what been 
    going on. Watch and understand. Ignore the fact that Gaspard is acting 
    like 5 years old....
    
    Afterward, Kuhn and you decide to meet with Gabi....which is kinda 
    intresting condering that Kuhn can get in to begin with, and second is 
    that about 99.9% of all 5000 players in Kestral HATE Haseo, 
    the Terror of Death. But anywho, Invite Kuhn to your party and then
     we're off:

     the raised up part of it. Near the top is a Thrown, as you approch it, 
    you will see a scene which is where the deal is 
    made. After ward leave and head back to Town.
    Anyway We come at least one point that I dont 
    even fully understand. I have no idea who Gabi is 
    from the old games. All I know is that he has a 
    hidden idenity of some type, and I honestly dont know what
    it is....oh well.

    A lil later you find out that Kuhn and Pi will be taking part in the 
    toutament as well.
    Also Silabus won't be joining you in the first round.....
    
    Log-out and check you're e-mail, maybe that'll provide some hope to a

    Check the official site and forum.

    Area Type:Jungel Cave
    Area Level:22
    Party:Haseo,None, None
    My level: 30
    
    This area should look real familar as in like the area where Antares sent you 
    to prove yourself. 
    
    Use the same stradgey as I mentioned to you before:
    -------------------
    o =Warp point
    [] =Is a room
    - =is a Passage way
    w= the finial warp point from the middle
    
    
    This map only shows the path you need to follow, it doesnt mark
    every warp point or rooms, just the ones you need to know about.
    --------------------------------------------- 
    
      N
     W+E
      S
    
    o-[ ]-[Finish]

    	 |
    	 o
    	 |
    	[ ]-o-[ ]-o-[ ]-{}-[start]
    
    --------------------------------------------
    Ok this map gives you an idea of what you need to do to get to the end
    but I'll explain it in words.
    *note*- dont use any warp points in the middle of a room until you get 
    to the FINIAL warp point in the center. The monsters in a room will 
    ussaly be guarding the door you need to go through to get to the 
    correct warp point. Keep that in mind.
    
    
    1) head west, ignore the warp point in the middel of the room, head
     righ to the one
    farthest to the left, use it.
    2) head west gain and use the west most warp point. Now head north and
     use the warp point.
    3) head north again and use that warp point.
    4) Now head east and use the east most warp point.
    5)Go east again and use the east warp point.
    6) Now head south and use the warp point.
    7) Now head west again and use that warp point
    8) You should now be in the center of the dungeon. use the warp point 
    in the center
    of the room. It will take you to the Beast statue.
    9) MAKE SURE to Grab the beast statue treasure and warp back to town.

    You may have to warp to the quest shop, once you do the quest will end and
    you'll see the awesome movie where Haseo recives his amazing new outfit. 
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Second Form
    Short Version/Main points: He looks awesome, enough said.
    ----------------------------------
    
    Afterward you'll get a broad
    sword, its Haseo's original sword, bad news is that it's really weak 
    compared to your awesome level 30 sword which you'll want to equipe for
     the tourtament. So when you're done you see Antares and he'll talk to
     you, lol its kinda funny. Watch and enjoy.
    
    Now then I'm going to cover Broad swords real quick. Broad swords are 
    really sweet, and between Twin swords and a Broad sword: the later is 
    more usefull as a general rule. The reason is that When you have your 
    normal Party of you, Silabus, and Atoli: Silabus is fast enough and you do
    all the heavey lifting aka heavey damage. I personially like the Hold and 
    release style alot more then speed. Anyway being that you've never used 
    them before I highly suggest going to a low leveled area (if you're level 30)
     go to an area like level 28, or (if you're at level 23) go to an area level
     20. The reason is you need to get used to using the new style of weapon. 
    But it's purly up to you.
    
    Afterward: Make sure to log out and check your e-mail.

    	----------------------------
    -Party:Haseo (31),Atoli(30),(None)
    -Opponets: Bordeaux (27),Negimaru,(26),Grein(25)
    -Before the fight advice: 
    
    Ok what you have to realize about the
    tourtament is that you just need to beat your opponet enough to
    trigger a story event. For those who decided NOT to go with my 
    level-up-like-crazy Stragedy (Option B): Just keep your eyes on the other team,
     just keep  using counter attacks, DO NOT use the skill trigger except to
     counter attack. Use you're  Charged attack to your advantage. Good luck. 
    -And if you were wondering: after this round 
    you'll have caught up to where my plan would have taken you. 
    Option A:
    For those who did it like I do, you should be level 31 and will 
    seriously kick some  butt. So no worries. Just go out there and knock 
    them to kingdom come (just make sure to use counter attacks, and keep 
    you eye on Bordeaux, she'll kill you if you're not careful) Good luck
     and DO NOT read ahead until the scenes are OVER. Then come
    back and I'll re-cap on all that major points.

    Movie- Skeith Awakens
    Short Version/Main points: Oh yeah, for those who haven't guessed all my
    obvious hints. Haseo's avatar is none other then the first phase: SKeith.
    This name is well remembered by the original .hack gamers as the first boss
    that taught them the meaning of 'PWNED'. Skeith was the finial boss from the
    frst game and a heck of a challenge. Not to mention Kite's first major 
    opponent. 
    
    If it wasn't for Skeith, Kite would have never been the hero he was....ahh the
    good old days. Anyway, point being is that Skeith is back and with a make over:
    he looks sweet. Also you see Ovan in the crowd. hehe, he helps Haseo awaken. so
    to speak. Also, REMEMBER only people with the ability to possibly use Avatars
     can even SEE avatars. Keep that in mind.

    Head for Canard's @Home for some more scenes.
    
    Also I should note, people going with option B: you need to get to level 32
     before the  next round in the Tourtament at which point you'll be completly
     caught to to people who leveled up like crazy before the first round. 
    I suggest you put together a party and head for a good area to train at, 
    for the up comming misson you should probably attain a level of atleast level
     26-28. Once you manage to do that; continue on with the story.
    
    
    
    Afterward you'll need to log-out and check your e-mail. You'll get at least
     4 important e-mails if you did the e-mails the way I did them:

    ----------------------------------
    
    No seriosuly I would ignore his e-mail till later. 
    I mean it'd be kinda pointless unless of course you really want to do some
     quests at the Quest Shop. Not that it'd be a bad thing. I mean they are kinda
     piling up and you got to do them eventually so if you want: go ahead and try
    doing some quests. But First the other e-mails
    
    
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail- Gaspard   : Re: Endrance
    Short version: Gaspard, aside from normally being stupid, actually brings
    up some very intresting points about Endrance. Reply: 'GoodLuck'

    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-   Silabus : Re-Resident of the Forest
    Short version: lol, you don't get alot of info on the quest but I can tell
    you that it's the reason why Haseo was so Bad @$$ as the Terror of Death. 
    But it wasn't the power that was the most intresting thing about the 
    quest: it was infact that there was someone waiting at the end of it. Someone
    who's been around for a very very long time. And he is also the underlying
    reason why everything went to crap the last time, and indirectly is why it is
    happening again. Many people who played the old games thought he was destroyed
    in the 4th game of the  original series, but apperentally he doesn't die
    that easy and he's still around. Point being, reply: 'You don't need to know'

    Movie- Tri-Edge's Sign
    Short Version/Main points: First off you watch as Tri-Edge attacks a player 
    with data drain. And to tell you the truth I really don't know what the heck
    he's doing. I mean even though I havn't played the 2nd or 3rd game, I do know
    alot about what happens. (stay away from www.dothack.net fourms if you don't 
    want spoilers) I actually stoped using the foums on that site cause I was 
    learning too much about what happens, and trust me, the games are alot better
    when you havn't been told what will happen. Anyway, I know why Tri-edge is the
    way he is, and I know what  he's generally been doing. But I honestly don't
    know for sure why he data drained that guy. Oh well, maybe we'll find out 
    later.

    well, you met Alkaid did you? She's a spunky little one aint she? 
    Also, you met Taihaku and the telephone pole: Sirius.
    
    
    
    
    
    !!!!!SPOILER WARNING!!!!
    
    
    
    
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------
    
     Again: For the .Hack Vetrans of the old series Taihaku is in fact
    a character from the old games. He may not be the 'hero of justice' 
    he once was but he still plays the game and like his old self, can't
     help but being one of the best and highest leveled players. 
    If you didn't know: He's the emperor of the Saga Placace AKA. Emperor 
    of Arena classlevel 101-150, making him pure ownage, same as always. He 
    may sound like an old guy now, and he may have aged a couple years but I 
    for one was EXTREEMLY glad to see his return to the games with the GU series.
    However, I should mention one thing, this character ID has not been 100% 
    confirmed but a group of people on dothackers.net believe he is who we 
    think he is.
    ------------------------------------------------------------

    You see some scenes with Pi. Time to get down to bussiness.
    I should point out that if you want with Plan B: you'll be following
    the game as it was intended with you're level now hopefully around level
    27. For those who did my awesome plan of ownage Plan A: You'll still be like
    level 31 and more then ready for this new area.
    
    After the sermon from Pi, Invite her to your party and head for the new area:

    Ok this area will Serve as a training ground or tutorial 
    for the Avatar Battles.
    
    
     For now you need to keep heading for the Beast statue, you'll come into 
    contact with AIDA 3 times between now and then. Those three times will serve 
    as an  opertunity to sharpen your skills on controling the avatar. After that 
    you'll be put to a test. But more on that later. For now head out and when
     you're attacked by AIDA come back and read so I can give you pointers on 
    how things work with all the Avatar game-play stuff. Ok, enough said for now: 
    Move out, you'll be runninginto AIDA very shortly.
    
    Pi will give you a short tutorial on how to do things But I'll add here
     and there to what's beeing said. For now Listen to Pi and read on when 
    you're turned lose on the AIDA.
    
    
    	-----------------------------
    ------------------ AVATAR BATTLES-----------------------
    	-----------------------------
    
    
    Controls:
    
    Normal Mode:
    
    --Left joy stick 
    Controls movement: 
    Up- Move toward target.
    Down- Move away from target.
    Left- Strafe left
    Right- Strafe Right
    
    Square- Uses stun shot (also inflicts damage)
    X- Slash (when close to target)
    O- Dash/boost of speed (With Joy stick)
    
    Data Drain mode:
    X- (hold down) Charge Data Drain
    O- Dash
    
    Notes on controls and Avatar Battles:
    -certian attacks must be evaded with Dash in order to avoid taking heavy 
    damage.
    -If you get hit when charging Data Drain you'll have to start charging again.
    
    -If you continously shoot AIDA with the 'Shot' button, you 
    will stun your enemy. When this happens Dash in quickly and Slash away to 
    inflict MAJOR damage. This  is ussally the only way enough damage is 
    inflicted to win.
    
    -Sometimes enemies will launch objects at you that you can only block by 
    slashing at it.
    - You must perform Data Drain quickly, you have a timer after an enemy protect
     breaks, if it reaches 0 you'll more or less have to start over.
    -There is a direct relation between how 
    strong Skeith is to how strong Haseo is. If Haseo levels up so does Skeith.
    
    
    Not much to say other then that: Good luck and enjoy the awesome
     avatar battles.
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: AIDA <Anna> :1
    My Level: 31
    Enemy Attacks:
    Algol Bullet- use Slash to defend
    Algol Laser- Powerful attack, use Dash to avoid.
    Normal shot- It will shoot little balls of energy at you. Dash to evade.
    
    Keep shooting it till it's stuned, get and close and slash away. Keep going 
    till it protect breaks.
    
    When it protect breaks you'll have a timer that will count down from about 1 
    minute, the timers vary from Boss to Boss. You need to data drain it in that
    time. Charge DD as you continue to watch the incomming enemy shots, dodge them
    and when AIDA pauses for a breif moment, release DD and fire away.
    -----------------------------------
    
    
    Afterward Pi mentions that summoning more then one Avatar is dangerous and that
    for now the best way to do things is summon just one and suport that person. 
    Also I'm sure you noticed that AVATARS generate a sort of alternate space when
    they're summoned. Not even Yata is sure why exactly that is, but as a result
    only avatar users can even see them. Which is a good thing. If regulare players
    knew about Avatars, they would seriously flip sh*t. But aside from that. Keep
    moving through the Dungeon and fight the next AIDA. Make sure to check back 
    at the end of each AIDA battle.
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: AIDA <Anna> :2
    My Level: 31
    Enemy Attacks:
    Algol Bullet- use Slash to defend
    Algol :Laser- Powerful attack, use Dash to avoid.
    Normal shot- It will shoot little balls of energy at you. Dash to evade.
    
    Keep shooting it till it's stuned, get and close and slash away. Keep going 
    till it protect breaks.
    
    When it protect breaks you'll have a timer that will count down from about 
    1 minute, the timers vary from Boss to Boss. You need to data drain it in that
     time. Charge DD as you continue to watch the incomming enemy shots, dodge them
     and when AIDA pauses for a breif moment, release DD and fire away.
    -----------------------------------
    
    Another down: and there's two more AIDA singnals in the area, keep looking.
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: AIDA <Anna> :3
    My Level: 31
    Enemy Attacks:
    Algol Bullet- use Slash to defend
    Algol :Laser- Powerful attack, use Dash to avoid.
    Normal shot- It will shoot little balls of energy at you. Dash to evade.
    
    Stragedy:
    Keep shooting it till it's stuned, get and close and slash away. Keep going
    till it protect breaks.
    
    When it protect breaks you'll have a timer that will count down from about 1
    minute, the timers vary from Boss to Boss. You need to data drain it in that
    time. Charge DD as you continue to watch the incomming enemy shots, dodge them
    and when AIDA pauses for a breif moment, release DD and fire away.
    -----------------------------------
    
    As you finish with the third AIDA Pi mentions something about other users 
    detected and that the singnal with in the area was steadily raising. Pi makes
     the call and says she'll take out the last one using her Avatar. For now 
    you go to find it. Head off toward the other block (Section) of the area. 
    You'll find what you're looking for at the Beast Statue. When you get there
     you'll have to be ready. You'll see a CG move where some story line events
    unfold. When you're ready to begin the next boss battle continue to read ahead
     so I can tell you how to handel it. But not until then other wise it'll 
    give away some goodies. Continue then come back.
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Pi Infected
    Short Version/Main points: As you and Pi were looking for the origin of the 
    last signal AIDA comes out of nowhere and tried to infect Zelkova. But Pi
     saves the day....kinda.
    
    Pi gets infected with Aida, she wanted you to 
    call Kuhn but Haseo know's it'll be too late by then, you have to do it.
    ----------------------------------
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: Tarvos
    My Level: 31
    Enemy Attacks:
    
    Normal shot- She shoots spikes out of her 'wings', Dodge with Dash
    
    Orb of Revenge- She launches a ball of binding energy at you, if you get caught
     in it, it will fuzz up your line of sight and make you all slow and stuff, 
    use slash to block it. you may have to slash a few times to get it destroyed.
    
    If you do enough damage to her quickly enough she will launch bigger stakes 
    at you, you need to destroy as many of them as you can before she's done 
    attacking because the ones you don't block she will collect up again and then
     will use her main skill: 
    
    Stake of Death- the stakes you didn't block she will launch at you again, 
    and you can't  avoid it.
    
    Data Drain-It won't kill you but you have to rapidly smash buttons to free
     yourself. What  I ussally do is change my grip on my controller
    ( take my right hand off) when I know this is comming, and I take my pointer
     finger and my middel finger and  rapidly smash the X and O button together
     to reduce the damage greatly. You can ussaly break free from the data drain
     effect with in about 1.5-2 seconds doing it like that, and that's essential
     durning other Avatar battles.
    
    
    Stragedy:
    She's tough if you're lower leveled but at level 31: no problem.
    She is still a challenge though, make no mistake about that.
    Keep shooting at her to try and stun her. Then move in close for an attack 
    with slashing. Also I should note that on rare occasions I've seen her use her
     Wings to form a shield to protect herself. Not sure if you have to get in
     close to slash her or what not, but use your best judgement if it happens to 
    you.
    
    
    Avoid her attacks as best you can, when she protect breaks she'll unlease a
    wave of stakes. As you charge DD use O to dash out of the way. When she pauses, 
    let her have it. Afterward  enjoy the scenes.
    -----------------------------------
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- End Result
    Short Version/Main points: You once again see that under neather the @$$hole 
    Haseo has a heart. "WELL GUESS WHAT HASEO! I'm gana beat that @$$hole out
    of you if it's the last thing I do. AND...you ARE gana become a hero if it 
    kills you."
    ----------------------------------
    
    Afterward you see some scenes with.....well their just two people..... the 
    little guy is actually someone from the old games. And if my information is
    right,  you'll be VERY suprised to find out who it is.....You want to know?
    WELL TOO BAD.
    
    Don't worry, Pi still has her Avatar, you just removed the AIDA that 
    infected her. Or at least that's what my sources tell me.
    Anyway, grab the Beast statue treasure and warp back to town.

    I'll Comment later:
    
    
    
    
    -Zelkova is extreemly intresting to me, He knows things that normal people
     don't. Not to mention he is every bit as strong if not stronger then Gabi.
     The major difference between the two is that Gabi shows off his strength now
     and then, Zelkova's strength isn't necessarily in levels (Don't get me wronge
     he's one of the strongest out there) but rather his strength is greatest in 
    what he can do outside of the game. But I won't say too much more, I'll 
    only give two hints: 1)In the old game this person had a tendency to randomly 
    pop up here and there to watch major events unfold.2) Also, normal players can
     not edit Zelkova's horns into their character like he did; There was also 
    a person in the old games who had a character like that.
    
    -Note that Zelkova was at that area to "observe".
    Pi Abruptly ends the meeting and leaves.

    When you get back to town, Pi brings up some very important points. Haseo
     is drawing WAY too much attention. I mean it's bad enough that he's the 
    Terror of Death, but on top of 
    that now he's becoming famous in the Tourtament.
    Now then, log-out and check for e-mails.

    This is your last chance to level up before the next round. I would be level
    32 if I were you or else this becomes a bit of a challenge, but not too bad.
    
    Also, I should note that you might want to talk with Death Grunty to see where
    you stand on the Books of 1000.
    
    Anyway I went ahead and took off for a level 34 area.
    
    
    	----------------------------
    -------**)(Random),(Random),(Random)-------
    	----------------------------
    Area Type:Field
    Area Level:34
    Party:Haseo,Atoli,Silabus
    My level: 31
    
    
    I Should mention that you should save any higher leveled equipment.
    Also you're not allowed to gain a weapon level over 5 before the first round
    of the tourtament, and as for me I was just about to gain another level, thats
    how I found out. Point being is that when you reach Weapon level 7 with your
    twin swords you'll gain Tri-Strike, your last Art for Twin Swords. After that
    I would work a bit on your broad sword skills, after all it'll probably end up
    being your weapon of choice.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    Also now that I've been thinking of Weapon Levels. There's a Cleric that you
    can trade with in town called Henko. She has these items that you can get 
    from her that will raise you're weapon level by 50%. If you have enough items
    that she finds valueable, you can get these  from her and raise weapons levels
    fast.  I believe that Weapon level 7 renders your finial Art for Each type of
    Weapon. That's four arts each, your party members can only get up to 3 arts 
    each. So don't bother using those items on them. Also I'm prety sure there's a
    guy called Corporal *something*, anyway he has those items to trade aswell. 
    (Note that if they don't have those items yet, they will later in the game)
    
    -Make sure to do the chores:
    Save game,Buy healing items,Work to upgrade equipment, and Restock
    
    When all is ready, get set for the next round: Warp to the Arena
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Lumina Cloth	    -------
    	----------------------------
    Register for the next round.
    
    As you guys prepare for the next round Haseo shows that he really really really
    is an @$$hole. I swear. Anyway good luck with the fight.

    -Party:Haseo (33),Atoli(32),Silabus(32)
    -Opponets: Matsu (33),Bekunai(32),Yosuke(32)
    -Before the fight advice: 
    
    This time you'll have to beat Matsu for real, no story event
    to save you this time. Just pound that crap out of him. Good luck.
    -------------------------------------------------
    
    
    Afterward you see some scenes at which point you aquire Flame Sword. Which is
     sweet cause  it's a really good weapon. Not a thing to do but log out and
     check e-mails.
    
    As you go to check your e-mail (if you visited Death Grunty and caught up on
     how you've progressed with the books of 1000) you may have new Greeting 
    cards. Feel free to send them to anyone you want. I suggest Kuhn and Pi 
    over the others just becuase their characters  have backgrounds that are 
    more relavent to the story line.
    
    
    Aside from that, Check your e-mail:

    As you warp toward this area you'll see some scenes. Watch first then
     read on.
    
    
    
    
    
    Ovan and Yata seem to have an understanding with one another, and it seems
     to me they know exactly what's been happening to Haseo and why...or at least
     Ovan understands completly. Ovan also mentions that the wall is a 'prison '
    for something, either what is on the other side of the wall, or what's on
    'this' side of the wall......
    
    
    As Haseo shows up Piros' dang ugly face is there to greet him. Just keep 
    talking to him until Haseo says there's no point in sticking around.
    
    Warp back to Town.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    
    When you get back to town get ready for some training: You need to level
    you and your Party up and look into new equipment up-grades.
    
    
    Buy/Trade/Find from treasure chest:
    (Haseo)Level 30 Twin swords-Customize with Fire attack and +10% Critacal hit
    (Haseo)Level 32 Flame Sword (matsu gives this to you after the second round)
    (Haseo) Level 35 Heavey Armor- Customize with -10% Physical damage, and -10%
     Magic Damage.
    (Haseo) level 24 or 35 accessory- Customize with Arts Knowledge
    (Atoli)Level 32 Staff- Customize with Water attack and Cure (or)Sleep
    (Atoli)level 28 Robes- Customize with -10% Physical damage
    (Atoli) Level 24 0r 35 accessory- Customize with Heal Knowledge

    (Silabus) Level 28 light armor- Customize with -10% Physical damage
    (Silabus)level 24 or 35 accessory- Customize with Arts Knowledge 
    
    
    When you and your party reach level 36, you'll be able to equipe all these
    items and you'll easily be ready for the next round. When you're done with
     that log-out to continue the story.
    
    By the way, at some point near here Canard's guild rank should probably
    increase to the 2nd rank. What this means is that you may or may not be
    getting an e-mail from cc-corp saying that You can buy up-grades for the guild.
    Just go to Death grunty and talk to him. All you need to know is that if you
     get the expansion you can sell up to 7 items at the guild shop at one time,
     and store more items.

    I love how Haseo randomly decides that loging-out and checking his e-mail

    register. Then get ready for the semi-finals match.
    
    There's nothing to say about the waiting room because nothing is said
    between Haseo and party. But you get to watch some funny scenes with
    Kuhn and Pi. =P

     with the last team in the finials.

    And then we have the scenes with Kuhn and Pi again. Kuhn is gana
     show Haseo just how terrifying the power of avatars are.

    Once back I should mention a few things to keep in mind:
    1) is that by this point in the game Henko should have skill books
    to up your weapon levels
    2) Is that Haseo and Atoli will be able to get a level 42 peice of armor.
    3) Eventually you may or may not come across some level 40 accessories.
    They're the best this game can offer, so make sure to get some.
    4) You'll probably need to head back out and keep leveling-up.

    When you get back to town you should be ready for the next and final round.
    Make sure to scout out for the last bits of equipment you might need, it'll
     probably just be armor and accessories.Get what you can, the last round is 
    not easy, and if you aren't ready for it, you'll get you @$$ handed to you.
    So when you think your ready Log-out and check your mail.

    Last Chance to do anything you need to. Then it's the Final Round.
    
    
    Remeber way at the begining of the Tourtament that Kuhn said GU members were
     taking part in the tourtament to target Endrance? Yeah well lets just say you 
    and them want to fight Endrance, so you two teams will have to fight it out to
     decided who gets to go to the Championship match.

    ---------19) Tourtament: Finials--------------
    	----------------------------
    -Party:Haseo (42),Atoli(42),Silabus(42)
    -Opponets: Kuhn (41),Pi(41),Antares(41)
    -Before the fight advice: 
    
    If you've prepared for this, and you know your arena tactics.
    And with some luck, and serious kicking of @$$ you'll do ok. Really 
    the best thing you can do is pick one of your opponents and just focus 
    on that one only. I would just consentrate on that person Silabus is 
    attacking. Or use the Menu and have Silabus use an Arts on the person 
    you're attacking so he focuses on that person aswell. Just makes sure to
     REALLY keep an eye on Kuhn's Steam gunner attacks. He uses them ALOT. 
    So either use that to your advantage and 
    counter-attack, or just hold the block button.
    
    Good luck and see you on the other side.
    
    
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: Magus
    My Level: 42
    Enemy Attacks:
    
    Normal shot- Kuhn will fire off a volley of rapid fire, dash like crazy
    to avoid.
    
    Flash of Green- A bunch of lasers will shoot out from magus. First they will
     go down the screen. Move a little to the left, then when the lasers start to
     come back up, move right back a little
    to where you started. They'll miss you entirely.
    
    Unforgiving Bud- Basicly Kuhn will release a bunch of buds that will come
     to attack you. Slash at them as the come closer to destroy them. If you 
    can't get them all , dash away in the oppisite direstion.
    
    Data Drain- Kuhn won't use Data Drain on you. Good thing too.
    
    Stragedy:
    --!!!-- This is important. Kuhn uses his avatar's shield to block
    almost all of your attacks. You can break the shield and stun Magus 
    by shooting all the green ovals that rotate on the out side of his 
    shield. Basicly they'll shatter,and when their all gone, the shield 
    will break you you will be able to land some slashes to inflict some
     major damage.
    
    -----------------------------------
    
    
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    ----------------
    I here by say that this my FAVORITE CG movie in this game, AND almost
    the BEST I've seen in the entire series of all the games (old and new).
    There's only a handful of other scenes that can compare to this story event.
    When I first watched this I almost cried.......almost. But none the less it
    teaches a truly great lesson about power and the responsibilities of having
    it. Anyway, enjoy the movies. They really are awesome.
    ----------------
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    
    
    Finishes all the scenes then come back and read.

    --------------------------------
    Movie- Roar of the Beast
    Short Version/Main points: Yeah Haseo looses control of his Avatar, and Skeith
    decides to have a heyday. At this point Haseo starts freaking out cause Skaeith
    it seriously kicking Kuhn's @$$.
    ----------------------------------
    You see some scenes where Kuhn talk to Haseo.
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Magus' Death
    Short Version/Main points: That's right Kuhn is dead, and Magus is destroyed
    when Skeith Data Drains Kuhn's Avatar.
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    
    Actually Kuhn is alright. See apperentally each Avatar has a Special ability,
     Kuhn's avatar can generate all sorts of data, So kuhn made a look-alike of
     his own Avatar and that is what Skeith ACTUALLY Data Drained. Which means
     Kuhn's Avatar is fine and so is Kuhn. This whole thing makes Haseo realize 
    just how dangerous avatars are and so FINIALLY Haseo is less of an @$$Hole
     and takes one more step toward becoming the coolest and most bad @$$ hero 
    ever seen in the .Hack series. To be honest one could almost describe his 
    new attatude as almost positive. Cheers!
    
    
    
    When it's all said and done with, log-out.

    As you enter you see some scenes. Pi and Haseo finially kiss and make 
    up. lol. Kuhn is as out going as ever, must be all those Women he like
     to flirt with, he never has to put up with any of them in real life. 
    =P Just kidding. No, other then his questionable habits he really is a 
    cool guy. Anyway as you watch Yata will give Haseo a new assignment. Yata 
    wants Haseo to have a talk with Endrance because pratically nothing is 
    known about him.
    
    Hey, don't forget, there is a Avatar battle Simulator at the Serpent 
    of Lore terminal. If you beat the pratice battles you can earn some 
    extra back grounds for the desktop.
    
    
    Anyway, You only have the Championship match, so time to finish what you 
    started. Get your normal party together and head for another batch of 
    training. For the next round I suggest
    having everyone at level 47: Not too high but not too weak either.

    ---------20) Tourtament: Title Match--------------
    	----------------------------
    -Party:Haseo (47),Atoli(47),Silabus(47)
    -Opponets: Endrance (45),(None),(None)
    -Before the fight advice: 
    
    As you enter you'll see some scenes with Ovan. You find out that Haseo 
    was in Ovan's guild: The Twlight Brigade. Zelkova mentions that he is 
    now extreemly intrested in  Haseo now....hehehe. And of course Zelkova
     would be I mean if you knew what I know about  Zelkova you might understand.
     Also the .Hack Vertrans know what I'm talking about. I mean the character 
    that Zelkova used to be had a reputation for poping in here and there and 
    always being around when something big went down. (At this point its only
     a rumor and hasn't been totaly confirmed, but it makes alot of sence 
    considering the evidence)
    
    
    
    Just hack away. Endrance is a extreemly quick fighter, but you can be
    faster. Let Silabus hack away at him and when he attempts to use the Arts,
     just counter attack.
    
    Good luck and see you on the other side.
    
    
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: Macha
    My Level: 47
    Enemy Attacks:
    
    Normal shot- he'll throw two sets of disks at you, dash to avoid. They're
    fast,so be quick.
    
    Normal Slash- When he charges you dodge to the side then shoot to stun Macha.
    
    Bolt of Love- Endrance unleashes several Rose like flowers, they'll come near
     you and fire
    a laser type shot at you. You can defend by destroying the flowers when they
     get close.
    
    Seductive Voice- He attacks with sound waves, just keep dashing to the side and
     you'll be fine.
    
    Bewitching wind- Endrance surounds Macha with parts of roses, be careful. This
     is one of the more dangerous attacks. You can't even hit macha with a shot: 
    Macha will raise up in the air a bit more and when it does it will charge you 
    right afterward. BE CAREFUL, you have to be quick and dash out of the way fast.
     This is also a great openign to stun.
    
    Data Drain- Endrance will go nuts in terms of Data Drain. So I hope you got
    your Data Drain defence stradgey down-> Two button smashing.
    
    Stragedy:
    --!!!-- Macha is very fast and you'll have to be on your toes to dodge .
    The best oppertunity to stun Macha is when Endrance charges you, dodge to the 
    side and while Macha's back is turned fire away. You should be able to stun;
    then move in fast to land some slashes.
    
    when Macha protect breaks, DD his but.
    
    
    When the fight ends MAKE SURE to listen to what Endrance says as his cat 
    dissapears. He says one word, and it's all that the fans of the older games 
    will know exactly who Endrance is from the old games. AND YES, this 
    character connection is in fact confirmed.
    -----------------------------------
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- "She" Dissappers
    Short Version/Main points: He says just one word: "Mia". And for the
     vetrans, there is only one character that Was very close to Mia. 
    That explains why he has Macha for an avatar, and
    also why he's got the whole blue hair thing going on.

    -E-mail-  Silabus  : About Atoli
    Short version: He tells you about Atoli and how 
    Haseo never thanked her for what she did for you
     guys in the arena. 
    ---------------------------------
    
    Well Check the forums real 'quick like' and then log-in.

    As you log-in you'll see some scenes with Atoli at the Lost Grounds.
    
    
    As you enter mac Anu, head for Raven.
    
    As you enter you'll yet more scenes, watch first then move on.
    
    
    
    
    
    --------------------------------
    Movie- Other Side
    Short Version/Main points: Atoli got sucked through the Tri-Edge Sign,
     looks like you need to go chase after her and find out what the crap is 
    going on. And yes Atoli is a possible Avatar user. Yata found that out when
    Haseo used Skeith for the first time on the Pkers. Also, you may or may not
    remember there was one other person who saw Haseo use the Avatar. hehehe, 
    if you're not sure then look it up in the movies from your desktop.
    ----------------------------------
    
    You'll also see some scenes with Ovan and Yata talking.
    
    
    --Preparing for the Final Battle-
    
    
    Anywho, Kuhn and Pi will be with you for your finial party when you face 
    the finial Boss. And yes, sadly our time is quickly comming to a close.
    
    However, not just yet, Kuhn and Pi are level 44 at this point, they need
     to gain 6 more levels. Haseo should be around level 47, he needs 3 more
     levels. Also you'll need get the 
    following equipment and items:
    
    
    Buy/Trade/Find from treasure chest:
    (Haseo)Level 40 Twin swords-Customize with Fire attack and +10% Critacal hit.
    (If you want to get the best set of twin blades in the game Keep reading)

    Also: if you can find Henko or Corporal Yano and get the Begingers text 
    and Beginers Book. You will gain the 4th and finial Arts for your weapons
     at skill level 7. Also, Your party members will gain only 2-3 Arts, 
    not 4 like you. Or if you like now that the tourtment is over
    head over to the arena and gain some skill exp from the Arena.
    
    -Important- I should note that Pi and Kuhn will just talk to you if you 
    attempt to trade with them or anything like that, so you'll have to 
    take them to a field if you intend to give them any of the above 
    mentioned things.

    Also, try and gain your 4th Arts. But when it's all said and done, 
    head back to town.
    
    
    Ok At this point in the game there's a pile of quests to do at the quest 
    shop. But, there's no sense in doing them now because you'll have lots of 
    time after you beat the game. So cheers. I'll cover all of them in the 
    Post-Game section that way it makes things easier and more  enjoyable, 
    and of Course the game's hidden quest. And you Can't do that one till you
    beat the game anyway.

    If you need to go out again and gain the last level or two then do so now.
    
    At this time I will cover only one of the quest you can do at the quest shop.
     The reason for this is that Haseo will eventually get his 'ultimate' 
    weapon for the game. It's not really the ultimate weapon in the sence 
    that it's not one of the lost weapons that really are the ultimate weapons
     that you can get in the second game ; but it's a close as you'll get 
    for this game. Anyway get your party together and if you want those 
    Twin Blades (I mean they are prety cool and all.) then  read the 
    following section. If not then Skip the next part and read where
    the title for the Final Battle is.
    
    
    ------Ultimate Weapons for Haseo-------
    
    Ok here is where I show the Pros and Cons between the best 2 sets
    of twin blades you can get:
    
    Name:Ripper's Blade:
    Level: 45
    Combo Style: Speed (extra set speed attacks added like the level 30 spin axe)
    Physical Attack: +15
    Elemental Bonus: None
    Customize Bonus: None
    Slots: Filled, can't be changed.
    To get: Complete the Bounty hunter Test Quest, 
    then hunt down all 7 pkers on black list
    
    Name: Spin Needle
    Level: 40
    Combo Style: Hold and Release
    Physical Attack: +14
    Elemental Bonus: +1 Wind (and added Elemental)
    Costumize Bonus: Up to X 1.25
    To Get:  Will cost 120,000+ gp to Alchemise. To do that you must buy
    6 level 35 Spin Axe, Alchmise them to get Spin Axe +5, use with
    Level 40 Spin Needle to get Spin Needle +1 (levl 40). If you do this
    5 times it will cost you 120,000+ gp, but you'll have the strongest 
    twin swords because of (X 1.25 Damage). 
    Slots: Fill in what you like.
    To Get: Prize for toutament, then Alchmise 5 times with Spin Axe+5.
    
    Honestly the Ripper's Blade is cheaper, easier to get, and is almost 
    just as good.
    
    ----------------------
    Name: Broad Wings
    Level: 43
    Combo Style: Hold and Release
    Physical Attack: +38
    Elemental Bonus: None
    Costumize Bonus: Up to X 1.25
    To Get: Find on in a field, then Alchmise 5 more to it
    to gain the (X 1.25 Damage) bonus.
    
    -Honestly it's that simple.

    This is very very easy, just go around and kill everything at the alters.
    When you're done head back to town.
    
    	----------------------------
    -------Town:	 Mac Anu	    -------
    	----------------------------
    Finish the quest. Note that the bounty hunter dude will
    not apear in the alley unil you log out and check your e-mail,then log back in.
    Make sure to talk to him before you start in on the next part.
    Basicly you need to defeat the 7 'BlackList' Pkers. If you do that
    you earn the best twin blades in the game. =)
    Now then you'll be heading to an area. Theres one
    that I know of that'll work well for what we're going to be doing.
    
    It is fields with battle Area->(where you encounter other players
     including pkers)
    
    VERY close to the warp point where you enter the field at.
    If you keep entering the battle areas you will eventually
    come across all 7 of the pkers, defeat them all and you'll earn those twin 
    blades.
    
    Here are the area KeyWords I used to do this and also the list of the Pkers 
    and their classes.
    (The keywords should all have Beserker for the third word.)
    
    Key words: 
    -- Counting, Red Plum's, Berserker
    
    (or try)
    
    Protected, Wraths, Berserker
    
    This is probably the best place your gana find that'll work the best for you.

    Magical Pokotan-Twin Sword
    Garden Michelle-Lord Partisan
    Poision Lei Lei-Tribel Grappler
    Immortal Goriki- Edge Punisher
    
    --Just repeat until you kill all 7, You may have to do this many times because
    when you enter a battle Area the battle will be with: A) Normal Monsters,
    B)Normal Pker, Or  C) Black List Pker.
    
    -See the dude in the back alley in the Mercenary District
    for your rewards, including one of the best sets of twin blades 
    upon completling the list.
    --Also, this is a good place to do the Mecha Grunty thing. Use the warp point
    to get to the other island, Mecha Grunty is close by. Kick the trees for Chims.

    This is the last chance to level up and grab what you need befroe the finial
    battle. When you are finially ready head for the Final Area.
    
    -Alright then, Really there's nothing else I can do. You've got the best 
    chance now more then ever of beating the finial boss. 
    
    -IMPORTANT!!-There is one thing I should mention, I'm prety sure I
    said this before somewhere in the game, but it is VERY important that you teach
    Repth to Pi. Just go to the magic store and buy the Repth scroll, use it 
    on Pi. Once done, set her to "Life" under strategy.

    chance to turn back, well if you've done even half the things I told you
    to you'll be fine.
    
    As you enter the 'Other side' you'll watch some scenes and movies.
    Be forewarned, this is a two part battle. Stop for now, and go play till you're

    Movie- Old Enemy
    Short Version/Main points: HE'S BACK!!!!! Hehehe, time to 
    settle things, but first a note from your friendly commentator; do you
    find it intresting that Tri-Edge didn't even seem to notice that Haseo and the
    gang were even standing there until AFTER Haseo drew his swords and 
    prepared to attack?
    ----------------------------------
    
    
    
    
    
    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: That's right, it's Tri-Edge, or I should say someone else maybe: 
    see if you  importated data from the old games, What ever you named Kite in 
    the Old games will be his name in the new ones also. =)
    
    My Level: 50
    Enemy Attacks:
    
    Normal Slash: He sends a blue slash of fire at you. Stay Behind him.
    
    Area Attack: Tri-Edge will rise in the air and release a Sphere of blue fire.
    
    Attack Skill- Not sure what it's called but he'll charge you or a party member 
    and attack, then dissapear then reapear and attack again, he'll do this 
    several times.
    
    Amazing Skill: Not sure what this is called either, but he'll pin one character
    in mid air, then he'll form 3 copies of tri-edge, together they'll attack the
    party member many times, over-all doing a good amount of damage.
    
    
    
    Stragedy: Stay behind him as much as possible. Hack away with the broad 
    sword, it works best. Keep health up by setting Pi to Healer, if you gave
    her the Repth scroll she should at least have that spell to keep you and 
    kuhn alive. That's it good luck. Beat his @$$ then come back  and read more.

    Anyway as you they start to fall though the floor, make sure to
    look closly at the big black blob of black matter that looks alot like AIDA.
    If you ask me I think it's important, tho I've been told it's not. But we 
    shall see in the next game.

    -----------------------------------
    BOSS FIGHT!: Azure Flame god
    My Level: EVER BIT OF 50
    Enemy Attacks:
    
    Normal shot- He fires a line of blue fire balls, move in between them to avoid
     damage.
    
    Area Attack- He'll unload two large fire balls on you. They'll explode to form
    lots of little fire balls. As it starts to explode, start to move forward,
    don't dash till the last second, and then only once. That way when the come
    together at you, you'll pass through the open  space in the  center, leaving 
    you unharmed.
    
    
    --Azure Tigger Claws-- This is the most annoying attack EVER, He'll throw two
    sets of  blades at you, but if you just stand still and combo slash at them,
     you'll run out of slashs in the combo, and the last two times you need to 
    slash you won't be able to. Hence they'll hit you for decent damage and 
    that'll add up after awhile. There's only ONE way I  know how to beat back 
    this attack.
    1) as he throws the Spinning blades at you, wait for half a second then
    dash forward at him and slash ONLY twice. This will knock the blades 
    to the side for just a second.
    
    2) Then, VERY quickly dash to the right. As they start to come at you again,
     you will be able to start with a new combo and finsh defelecting them. 
    This does not work all the time but I seem to have a 2/3 chance to pull it off.
    
    -Azure Wild Flower- When he pulls back to charge, DASH to the side and do it 
    fast, because if he grabs you, you will suffer a MASSIVE ball of energy to the
    face. You can only afford to take a hit like that once or twice before you'll
    die. But there is one good thing: if he misses you it'll give to the chance to
    dash in quickly toward him and land some slashes for a small amount of damage.
    Better then nothing. Also he'll probably try to do this several times in a row.
    
    
    
    Stragedy: That's right ladies and gentalmen, Skeith and the Azure Flame god are
    having a show down!!. Heck yeah, time to seriously kick @$$.
    
    As he starts to shoot flame balls, keep firing into him with Skeith's normal 
    shot, try not to move side to side as much as possible, if you can get 4-5 
    direct hits in a row, it'll stun him and give you an opening to attack.
    Just keep trying to stun him as he throws those normal fire balls at you.
    Try not to move as much as possible. You can do it. This is you chance to do 
    massive damage on him, you need to do this as much as possible. Other wise you
    won't be able to inflict enough damage.
    
    
    -He'll protect break sooner or later. Charg Data Drain and 
    dodge those fire balls!! When he stops, let him have it.

    First off you'll get an e-mail from the game creators =)
    ----------------------------------
    -E-mail-  Uchiyamada  : Congrats on finishing
    Short version: Basicly he goes over the fact that as long as you keep
    your saved game as "Clear Data", you'll be able to load your character's 
    items, money, equipment, levels, exp, est. when you start Vol. 2. This has
     to be one of the biggest reasons I love .hack//

    There's a new 'Online Jack' for you to see, which is the last one for this 
    game. But don't worry you'll continue to follow Jack's story in the next 
    games. And yes, this one is rather good as well, not to mention cool.
    
    ----------------------------------
    -News-
    Short version: there's a boring articale about Methane, and also an 
    intresting artical about making a movie about "The World". But lastly 
    there is the finial episode for 'Online Jack' that is available for this game,
    his story will continue in the next game.
    Watch and enjoy.

    Forum Topic- 
    Short Version: Lots of stuff here. There's a sweet topic under
    "Got Ganked". People talking about Haseo clearing out the black 
    list. Hehehe, sweet!
    
    There's a comment on the Crimsion VS forum about how it may be possibly 
    opening soon. You actually get to play it in the second game. The other forums 
    just say some other stuff, not too important.
    ----------------------------------
    Anyway, At this point I'm going to cover the games hidden quest,
     regulare quests from the Quest shop, and other odds and ends.
    Before you start into the next section I should mention that if you
    kept selling stuff at the guild shop, you can visit the central district
    and collect the rather large sum of money that Gaspard needs to give you.
    I got about 75,000gp for roughly 30+ itmes from training before the 
    finial boss. =D
    
    Also, before you sart into Vol 2. I highly suggest collecting
    Begginer's Text/Books from Corpral Yano and Henako. You should have
    22 at least. And sincw we're talking about getting stuff for the next game.
    I suggest you save up about $250,000. This will greatly help you when starting
    the next game.

    Basicly you can chose to do things the easy way or the
    hard way, If you waited like I did till the end of the 
    game to do all the extra quest: you can go right ahead 
    charge righ in. However if you are lower leveled and 
    need to take percatuions, then Go around the area and 
    find all 3 hills. they are more or less ina triangel 
    partern, you'll know you're in the right spot when a
    cut scene is triggered. When all three itmes are placed
    fight the Knuckleman. Really not much to say other the,
    use that block buttom, and beat the crap out of him.
    At level 50 I beat himin one hit with out using any of
    the Dr's items. hehehe.

    AKA: run around and slaughter them all.
    Finially the Lucky animal will appear, you can find him on the
    first hill you came to when you entered the area, so you'll have to
    back track a bit. but with the steam bike, it should be no trouble.
    chase it down and kick it.

    In this area you;ll meet enemies that look like blue tigers. They use a magic
    watter attack spells. You can tell when you're going to be attacked by the red
    circles on the ground comming toward you. Make sure to hold the block button
    or suffer a blast of magic in the face.
    
    -This quest is really easy. All you have to do is keep on going through the
    dungeon till you run into a Lucky animal. If you kick it, it will summon 
    King Chim Chim. The way you do this is: Kick the King three times in a row then
     run away. He'll jump at you and miss. Then, repeat till he's toast. You'll 
    auto. warp back to town.

    What you're looking for is way way at the South-East corner of the field.
    Bascily you can use your steam bike to get there, but then you HAVE to walk
    back. And after picking up the Snow Stone, DO NOT get into a fight with
     monsters or else you'll have to start over. Anyway the best way of doing it
    is just staying along the edges of the shore line to avoid monsters.
    Also If you wanted to do it a different way, just kill all the monsters 
    before you pick up the snow stone.
    
    Anyway, once you get it make your way back to the only Platform in the field.
    warp back town.

    This area should look real familar as in like the area where Antares sent
    you to prove yourself.
    Use the same stradgey as I mentioned to you before:
    -------------------
    o =Warp point
    [] =Is a room
    - =is a Passage way
    w= the finial warp point from the middle
    
    
    This map only shows the path you need to follow, it doesnt mark
    every warp point or rooms, just the ones you need to know about.

    Ok this map gives you an idea of what you need to do to get to the end
    but I'll explain it in words.
    *note*- dont use any warp points in the middle of a room until you get to the
    FINIAL warp point in the center. The monsters in a room will ussaly be 
    guarding the door you need to go through to get to the correct warp point. 
    Keep that in mind.
    
    
    1) head west, ignore the warp point in the middel of the room, head 
    righ to the one farthest to the left, use it.
    2) head west gain and use the west most warp point. Now head north and 
    use the warp point.
    3) head north again and use that warp point.
    4) Now head east and use the east most warp point.
    5)Go east again and use the east warp point.
    6) Now head south and use the warp point.
    7) Now head west again and use that warp point
    8) You should now be in the center of the dungeon. use the warp point
     in the center of the room. It will take you to the Beast statue.
    9) MAKE SURE to Grab the beast statue treasure and warp back to town.

    and kill every crab looking thing in sight.
    
    -You'll find a enemy party on the east side of the dungeon. one
    fork below where you started from.
    -The next part of enemy crabs is in the south most part of the
    dungeon.
    -After that move on to the section that forms a square, roughly 
    speaking.As you start to enter that part of the dungeon you'll see
    a scene with Alkaid.
    
    Afterward, Just keep going in circles around the square like path
    until you kill them all. Then continue to keep going until you
    see the last scene with Alkaid.

    ---------------- b)HIDDEN QUEST ---------------
    		---------------
    ========================================================
    
    
    
    Also Known as the Abyss Quest.
    This quest starts with a topic on the Board.
    Many people from the older games may or may not remember the bonus
    dungeons. They ussally involved warping to an area, getting through a
    dungeon and then finially beating a finial boss. This was done after
    the game was completed and could only be done then. I remember some
    of those old bosses, and all of them were 100X harder to beat then
    anything that's been thrown at me in this game....except for maybe
    the Azure Flame god....maybe. 
    
    This time around the game creators have included a new type of 
    bonus mission. Really it's almost more of a side plot then an 
    actual bonus dungeon. But none the less, I found it enjoyable.
    
    You may remember near the begining of the game that there was a topic
    on the Bords about a chest that wouldn't open.

    This dungeon is a bit bigger and harder to deal with, no more
    easy straight shot dungeons. Use Fairy Orbs and make your way though the
    dungeon. I should note that the enemies here are all like the undead you
    faught before.  Good luck.
    
    As you get near the end of the Dungeon, they will transport you and
    your party to the Lost Grounds.
    
    
    That's when you meet him:
    
    ---------------------
    !!!!Boss: Cernunnos
    
    This guy is Bad @$$.
    He can poision you, and hit you so hard it'll send you flying though 
    the air. Anyway, just use your broad sword and pound the crap out of him.
    As long as Pi is set to healing, you should be just fine. If you happen
    to get enough Moral to do an Awakening, it'll probably be so far into the
    battle that you'll just finish him off with that.
    Good luck.
    ---------------------
    
    When it's all said and done you get the Black Armor and 5000gp.
    The Black Armor it has some prety good stats, but really 
    it's customization material isn't all that great. Although
    it has it's bonuses, you lose alot of SP when using the armor.
    
    Watch the scenes and laugh.
    
    
    When you report in you get the folloing:

    Now, wasn't that fun? 
    Well ladies and gentle men, it is time for me say good bye. Yes that's right,
    I must go now for my task is now done. However I will leave you the following
    sections on the last of the odds and ends to be taken care of. Please make sure
    to read them as I'm sure they can help you greatly. Also, if you intend to
    continue playing the rest of the games, I highly suggest you look for my
    section on the Dopplerganger as the prizes for defeating him are really 
    a nice perk to look forward to for the next game. Anyway, I'll leave my
    finial parting comments near to the credits.
    
    
    
    		---------------
    ---------------- c)Doppleganger---------------
    		---------------
    
    This is just a quick section for the Doppleganger: What is it? 
    Why should I care? What's in it for me? Est.
    
    
    The Doppleganger is a rare monster that looks like an evil version of Haseo.
    This monster is very strong and is ALWAYS 8 levels higher then you. Even if
    you reach the Level 50 cap he will still be 8 levels high then you (levl 58).
    
    Now before you start to pea your pants or the oppisite and you think you can 
    take him. I should tell you that he is by far the HARDEST monster to beat. 
    BUT he can be beaten.
    
    To find him you should follow this stragedy:
    
    Go to an open Field area. Kill enough monsters to fill your Moral Guage, save 
    the Awankening. Stand still and do nothing for about 10 minutes, give or 
    take some.
    
    You will start to see a red arrow much like the ones that show where an enemy 
    party of monsters are. However, this arrow points to Doppleganger. It's rare, 
    but  after ten minutes if he still hasn't shown up, begin to walk around the 
    field until you find him. I highly suggest removing all monsters from the field
    while doing this.
    
    You'll know it's him when the edges of the screne turn red and 
    the creepy music starts playing in the back ground.
    
    Here's how I beat him, I got this suggestion off of Zer0. So credit to him.
    
    I suprised attacked him then:
    After I built up the moral guage I used Beast Awakening on him and beat the poop
    out of him, then I just finished him off. IF all else fails, build the moral
    guage back up and let him have it again.
    
    !!!!- What ever you do, DO NOT let him attack you while engaged in a 
    fight with normal Monsters. He can walk into a battle area then you'd be dead.
    
    It took me like 20 minutes to track him down and kill him. Anyway, thats how I
    do it.
     Good luck.
    
    Reason for doing this?
    Because if you beat him you get a key item called the "Own King."
    And in the next game you can get level 50 weapons that are as good 
    as level 100 weapons. That's why, also you'll have Bragging rights, =)

    =============================================================================
    The following section WAS NOT written by myself but was actually done by a 
    group of people from the forums at www.dothackers.net ; This section of Zer0's
     guide is how I was able to complete the books myself, So I thought it would
    be fitting if I promoted their guide by including the section I used when I
    played the games for myself.
    
    Realize that I did in fact get permission to use this section in my guide, and
    I will give credit where credit is due.

    --However I will mention one thing, you don't have to get 100% of all these
    itmes or monsters, you just have to get close enough to get the rank to max
    out. AKA Get close enough but it doesn't have to be 100% done to get the
    desired effect.

    Description: Keeps track of Play Time, and the number of fields you've gone to.
    
    Strategy: For play time, you can leave your PS2 on overnight, and for the other
    3 entries, just warp to different types of places.
    
    
    ----Ryu Book 6 - Arena
    
    Description: This book keeps track of how many Arena Matches you've fought in,
    how many times you've counterattacked (Using Rengeki), and how many Winner
    Points (WP) you've acquired.
    
    Strategy: Fight in the arena a whole lot to get your Arena matches and WP up.
    To get your counterattack up, when the match starts, wait until someone
    (probably the leader) begins to glow, and then hit R1 and attack that person.
    Then back up, and wait for them to do it again. Repeat this process as many
    times as you wish.
    
    
    ----Ryu Book 7 - Monsters
    
    Description: This book keeps track of how many types of monsters you've fought.
    
    Strategy: Use the Monsters list 
    Note: If you imported data from a previous .hack game, Kite will be named
    whatever your character was named in the previous games.

    ---------------- Frequently Asked Questions ---------------
    	        -----------------------------
    
    
    Being that this IS a FAQS/ Walktrough guide I thought that after geting
    several e-mails I would put together a little Q and A section to put into
    my guides from the series. In here you'll find all the questions that have
    come up from the e-mails I've gotten from people. I really enjoy doing
    what I can to give you good info. and I love hearing from everyone.
    (Even if it's just to tell me what you thought of the guide/guides)
    So I hope this might give you all some good advice.
    
    --------------------------------------------
    -- 1)Technical/Game Play/Story Line Questions
    --------------------------------------------
    
    
    
    
    -----
    --- 1)Questions for All 3 Games :
    -----
    
    -1) Can't stop Sp Draining
    Q: My SP goes down by one like every second and I can't make it stop! It only
    does it when I'm in a field or dungeon, not a town. Can you tell me what I'm
    supposed to do??
    
    A:If it keeps happening over and over again no matter what; my guess is that
    you should check your armor Materials. You know, the items you use to 
    customize armor? Check it. My guess is that you have an item called 
    Spirt Tree Bud.
    That item (Armor Material) has an intresting affect: It will decrease
    your skill points over time  but the benifiet is that it will increase 
    Haseo's stats as the Sp is consumed.
    
    
    -2) How to get Keywords
    Q:I want to ask you how to get (Blank) area words?
    
    A: There are only three ways to get keywords. Some are
    more common then others. 1-you will get keywords from Story line events.
    2- you can get keywords from topics on the Forums and Official Forums, you
    can only get certian ones this way. 3- lastly you will get key words as
    rewards for getting B, A,or S rankings when leaving an area. These are
    random and tend to be harder to get. Just try to do well everytime you
    go to an area and you should be albe to earn alot of them.
    
    
    -3) Job Extensions
    Q: When can Haseo start using other weapons besides dual swords? And
    How do I unlock them?
    
    A: Ok. A Common Question for rookies to the series.
    These are the weapons Haseo can use:
    -Twin Swords- Default weapon.
    -Broad Sword- Job Extension right before 1st round of the Demon Palace
    tounament. 
    -Scythe- Job Extension near the begining of Vol 2.
    -Dual Guns- Ahhhhh not aloud to say how he got it, but
    basicly it's near the middle/end of Vol 3.
    
    -4) Books of 1000
    Q:Can I complete the missing things from the Book of 1000 from vol 1 in vol 2?
    
    A: Yes, to some extent. See 99% of the books can be done in any of the 
    volumes. However, Quest Champaigns is where the problem is. You get
    special rewards for doing the Champaigns: Special Armor, Accessories, and once
    in awhile Weapoms. The problem is that ALL Champaigns from the quests in vol 1
    end(or become unavaible) at the begining of vol 2. And ALL Champaigns from Vol2
    end at the Begining of Vol 3. So you lose the chance to get those items. The
    best thing to do is just max the limit on the book for item collection before
    you play the next volume. The only other thing I can think of is that you
    should complete the Hidden quests in each game and get the doppleganger
    weapons in vol 2.
    
    
    
    
    ------
    --- 2)Questions for Vol 1 :
    ------
    
    
    -1) Bounty Hunter/Ripper's Blades
    Q:How do you get the Ripper blades?
    
    A: First off the bounty hunter quest becomes avalible as the story progresses.
    It's called "Hunter's Test". Once you clear this quest you can't start the
    Champaign. You need to log-out and then log back in before you can find the
    NPC in the back ally of Mac Anu in the mercenary district. For more info. see
    the Quest section of my guide for Vol 1.
    
    
    -----
    --- 3)Questions for Vol 2 :
    -----
    
    
    
    -1) Doppleganger's weapons
    Q:I had a problem with doppleganger. I was level 100 and had the key item
    "own king" from vol. 1 and I was able to defeat him but he just gave me 
    the two weapons (dual sword and broad) and only one key item. 
    Could please tell me why I couldn't get the scythe and the other key item?
    
    A: It's really quit simple. The answer is: Go beat him again. 
    Yes that is right. You need to defeat him twice (2 times)
    in order to get all three weapons and the both key items.
    
    
    -2) Crimson VS
    Q:I was wondering if you could tell me how to actvate crimson vs.? 
    
    A: Simple. It becomes avalible near the begining of Vol. 2. Just progress the
    story line.
    
    
    
    -3) Divine Awakening
    Q:Does affection hav something to do with the Divine Awakewnig? how's it work?
    
    A: Yes, it does affect it: When you use Divine Awakening the little marker
    starts to scroll across the bottom of the screne. Obviously if you get
    it closer to the middle you'll do more damage. There are 3 'Perfect" marks
    in the middle of the bar. By Increasing your party member's affection, those
    three 'perfect' marks become wider and therefore easier to hit. Therefore
    giving you a better chance to do mroe damage. 
    
    
    
    -4) Password from Salvador Aihara
    Q:When you go to the rumors board and news section you hear some stuff about
    Salvador Aihara and that he plays the World. After an annoying chase of
    checking the rumor board and logging back in you meet him as his character
    Kazubolo “The Last Hope” in Mac Anu’s back ally, where he tells you his
    true identity as the famous news reporter, and tells you to keep quiet if
    he gives you the Wallpaper and Password: Nurse Carnival. SOOOO…I guess my 
    question is, what is the purpose of the password: Nurse Carnival? I know its
    not area words cause I checked all 3 sections. 
    
    A:That topic has been discussed several times on the dothackers.net boards.
    See we have the privledge of having a few ppl who visit those Forums who
    are from Japan and speak english, they've been able to answer several 
    questions for us. And as far as any of us can tell the password is useless.
    However, I've read in some of the interviews with the game creators that
    they are putting bonus material in the GU games just for the North American
    versions of the games. So it may or may not have something to do with bonus 
    stuff in vol. 3.  But it doesnt seem too likly. If I hear anything I'll put
    it in my guide for vol 3.
    For now dont worry about it becuase it appears as if the password is
    worthless.
    
    
    
    ------
    --- 4)Questions for vol 3 :
    ------
    
    
    1)Final Boss for the Series
    Q: Is Ovan the final boss in vol. 3 , if he is not then who? 
    
    A: No, Ovan is not the Final Boss for Vol 3. Although I can see where
    you might think that. I mean Corbenick was the final boss of the original
    series. But No, The final boss for Vol 3 is bigger, badder, and
    generally a whole lot worse the Corbenik (Ovan). 
    Who the last boss is exactly, well lets just say that he was a major
    enemy from the original series.
    
    
    2) Last Hidden Quest
    Q: Is there hidden quest in vol. 3 and who is the boss ? 
    
    A: Yes there is a Hidden Quest for vol 3. And it's one Haseo has done before. 
    (aka he did it before the events of //Rebirth, during //ROOTS, Look around on
    the rumor's boards and see if you can figure it out) 
    And, No: There isn't JUST 1 Boss. Instead there are: 17 normal field bosses
    that are stronger then normal, 2 semi-hard bosses that mimick the hidden quests
    from the other games, and One Finial show down with a truly rediclous monster.
    
    
    3)Hardest Avatar Battle 
    Q: What is the hardest avatar battle and the hardest boss you foughtin 
    all 3 volumes ?
    
    A: Well, that's a hard question. See the vast majority of the Avatar battles
    don't HAVE to be tough. Reason being that you can just go out and level up;
    which in turn boosts Skeith's stats hence making the avatar battles easier.
    So really all of the avatar battle COULD be tough, but they don't have to be.
    
    But if I had to chose one battle I'd say Azure Flame god. The reason is that
    even at the level 50 cap, the Azure Flame god is still a pretty hard battle.
    I mean it's fast paced, and it's really hard to avoid all the attacks.

    Bandai - For the first four Classic .hack games: They inspired me
    to work on my own projects.
    
    BandaiNamco - For the .hack//G.U. games, they are even better then the
